OKLAHOMA CITY -

A man accused of killing his wife and her unborn baby was told he will be held without bond on two first-degree Murder complaints Monday.

Justin Adams was arrested Friday in connection with Jaymie Adams' murder. She was reported missing in December 2011 by her husband. Her body was found on January 7, 2012.

Monday, Justin Adams' mother spoke out on camera for the first time since her son's arrest. Tina Clarke maintained that her son was innocent.

"They've locked an innocent man in jail, right now," she said.

During Justin Adam's first court appearance Monday morning, the judge ordered Justin be held in jail without bond on two first-degree murder complains.

Clarke said it was probably a serial killer or someone Jaymie met on Craigslist that killed her. She said police started treating Justin like a suspect after he lied. Court documents show he made conflicting statements about the case. Justin did not initially tell police that he and his wife were soliciting men online for sex.

"The lie that was told the very first night. When the officer showed up to take that report, I told my son not to tell that she was prostituting," said Clarke. "The public and police, when they see a prostitute will not lift a finger to help. I said, ‘Put her out there as a mother.'"

Jaymie was prostituting on Craigslist and Clarke believes investigators and the District Attorney's office have missed some critical pieces of information. She said they refuse to take her calls.

"I tried to call him and give names and number to people I know in Jaymie's past that has threatened Jaymie, that Jaymie was hiding from," Clarke said.

Clarke said she is not worried about being connected to Jaymie's murder, but she said she fears possible retaliation because of rumors connecting her to the crime.

"As far as vigilantes out there, yeah I'm scared," said Clarke. "I'm scared to stay at home. I don't stay at my house. I'm afraid someone is going to take matters into their own hands."

The District Attorney's office had not filed formal charges against Justin Adams as of Monday. Those charges are expected to come in the next week.
