Defense attorney Irven Box criticized Prater for waiting until the night before Adams' scheduled preliminary hearing to file the amended charges and said he will ask a judge Wednesday to dismiss the case against his client.
“I really think the charges should be dismissed,” Box said. “They've known for months that Justin Adams did not murder his wife.”
Justin Adams reported his wife missing in the early hours of Dec. 10, 2011. He told investigators that he and his wife were “swingers,” who both actively used Craigslist to solicit men for sex.
Adams said Jaymie Adams was a working prostitute who was meeting clients the night she disappeared.
