According to an affidavit filed with the manslaughter charges, Cyr told investigators he had contact with Jaymie Adams via emails, text messages and phone calls on the night of Dec. 9 and early the next morning. Cyr denied meeting the woman at any time, the affidavit states, but a DNA sample taken from the woman's body matched the DNA profile of Cyr.
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.
