The case against Joseph Cyr will go to trial.

A judge bound Cyr over for trial following a his preliminary, which began at 11 a.m. Wednesday in Oklahoma County. Cyr, who police say contacted Jaymie Adams for sex is accused of killing Jaymie Adams and her unborn child.

The state called several witnesses including the man who discovered Jaymie Adams' body in January 2012 while riding 4-wheelers near Lake Stanley Draper. The witness described the body as being out in the open and said it was difficult to tell if the body was a man or woman. He also testified that she was wearing a white hoodie and her pants were missing.

The second witness called was Justin Adams, Jaymie's husband. The couple was allegedly involved in an online prostitution that ultimately led to her murder. Prosecutors alleged he got her killed by posting ads for sex with his wife on Craigslist.

During Adams' testimony, he revealed the intimate details of the couple's prostitution activities on Craigslist. Adams claimed he typically went with his wife to meet clients for safety reasons. However, he testified the night of her disappearance was an exception.

The defense challenged Adams testimony by asking if he had a life insurance policy on his wife. Adams said - to date - "he still does not know."

Adams pleaded guilty to manslaughter charges in February for his role in their deaths, as part of a plea deal with the state. Justin Adams walked away a free man.

Prosecutors alleged Cyr was the last client to respond to the Craigslist ad - but Cyr denies ever meeting up Jaymie. A match of Cyr's DNA suggests otherwise.

Cyr has been locked up for 10 months waiting to hear the state's evidence against him for the murder of Adams and her unborn baby.

Cyr was arrested the same day prosecutors reduced the criminal charges against her husband, Justin Adams. Adams was the initial suspect in the case until new evidence surfaced in April 2013.
