The man accused of contacting a pregnant mother for sex has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder for her death and the death of her unborn child.

Just as prosecutors reduced the charges against Jaymie Adams' husband, Justin, they reveal a new murder case against Joseph Cyr.

Cyr is being held without bond at the Oklahoma County Jail. Court records confirm multiple calls and text messages to and from Cyr's cell phone. They also show both Cyr and Jaymie Adams were in the same part of the city, at the same time.

"We knew the real killer was still out there," said Justin Adam's attorney, Irven Box.

"That puts a lot of ease on my family that the real killer has been picked up," said Adam's Mother, Tina Clark.

According to court records, several days after Jaymie Adams' disappearance, investigators contacted Cyr. During the interview, he admitted responding to an ad on Craigslist related to prostitution, but denies ever actually meeting up with Jaymie for sex.  

Cyr told investigators Jaymie was trying to convince him to meet with her. Adams' attorney says Cyr should have been sought after by homicide investigators from the beginning.

"Sought out her on Craigslist and then committed this brutal horrible crime on her and her unborn fetus," said Box.

"We turned his phone number into the police department the very first day she went missing, and begged them to check him out," said Clark.

Cyr was the last person Jaymie was in contact with before she went missing. Investigators learned from two friends of Cyr, that he was familiar with the area where Jaymie's body was found because they had ridden horses with Cyr in the area off South Douglas Blvd.

According to court records, Jaymie's body was found there with at least 29 stab wounds to her head, neck, torso, and back. DNA taken from inside Jaymie's body was a match from Cyr. 

"I want to know why. Why did he feel that he had to take her?" said Clark.

Justin Adams is still waiting to hear the evidence against him after a delay in his preliminary hearing Wednesday. Prosecutors allege he posted ads on Craigslist soliciting sex with his wife. Although Justin's charges have been reduced to manslaughter, prosecutors say his role in the prostitution ultimately played a part in his wife's death.

Adam's preliminary hearing on manslaughter charges was rescheduled to June 26.
