Jaymie Adams was also severely beaten, her jaw broken into three pieces, the report shows.

Justin Adams was arrested in connection with his wife's death in January. He was charged with two counts of murder because his wife was eight weeks pregnant when she was killed.

A little more than a month after police obtained Cyr's DNA, Justin Adams was released after posting $100,000 bail.

According to the warrant, investigators recovered sperm from Adams' body and that several men voluntarily provided DNA samples to police, with the exception of Cyr.

Irven Box, an attorney representing Justin Adams, said he has not seen “a shred of evidence that ties Adams to the murders or the crime scene.”

According to court documents, prosecutors have requested more time to pursue their case against Justin Adams.

Throughout the investigation into Adams' killing, police have named only one suspect — her husband.

According to court documents, Justin Adams changed his story after reporting his wife missing and also failed a lie-detector test when asked whether he knew the location of his wife.

Court records also reveal that investigators reviewed the couple's cellphone records and noticed that during the early hours of Dec. 10, the same day Jaymie Adams was reported missing, “the telephones of both Justin and Jaymie were relaying telephone calls from the same telephone towers.”
