Oklahoma man charged with murder in death of wife

OKLAHOMA CITY,OK (AP) - Oklahoma County prosecutors have charged the husband of a slain pregnant woman with first-degree murder.

Two murder counts were filed Monday against Justin Adams, who is accused of killing Jaymie Adams.

The medical examiner concluded she was beaten and stabbed. Her body was found Jan. 7 in southeast Oklahoma City.

In court documents, police say Justin Adams admitted lying about circumstances surrounding her disappearance in December. Police say he initially told them she was meeting a friend, then said his wife worked as an Internet prostitute and left to meet a client.

Officers also say Justin Adams didn't reveal that his wife had accused him of domestic violence.

His attorney told KWTV he didn't see anything in the affidavit that tied his client to the killing.
