Jury In Joseph Cyr Trial Visits The Murder Scene
OKLAHOMA CITY - Jurors are going back to the scene of the crime - where the body of pregnant Oklahoma woman was found five years ago.
It's the latest in the case against Joseph Cyr, who is on trial for first degree murder in the death of Jaymie Adams and her unborn child.
Wednesday marked the first day of testimony.
Prosecutors wasted no time, and brought the jury to the scene of the crime to get a feel for where Jaymie Adams pregnant body was found dumped out in a field near Lake Stanley Draper.
After hearing the attorney's opening statements in the case against Joseph Cyr, the jury of 13 women and one man was shown gruesome pictures of the crime scene and Jaymie's mutilated body. They also heard from the officer who took them. They were then loaded up into a van just after 2 p.m. Wednesday, and taken to the exact same spot.
It was a cold January morning that the decomposing body of Jaymie Adams was finally found wearing only a white coat, nearly a month after she was reported missing by her husband Justin. She had been stabbed a total of 29 times.
Court documents revealed both Jaymie and Justin had been placing online ads for sex, and would both arrange meetings with men.
DNA evidence found inside Jaymie Adams' body led police to Joseph Cyr.
Court documents state Cyr did contact Jaymie Adams but he told investigators he never met up with her, but DNA found inside Jaymie's body matched Cyr's DNA to a tee. Which is what led prosecutors to charge him in the death of Jaymie Adams and her unborn child.
Among the people expected to testify in the case is Jaymie Adams own husband Justin, who pleaded guilty to manslaughter and received a 10-year suspended sentence. In his plea, he admitted he helped prostitute out his wife on Craigslist.
