OKLAHOMA CITY -

Justin Adams, the husband of a Blanchard pregnant woman who was found murdered in 2012, has pleaded guilty to two counts of manslaughter on Wednesday. 

According to Adams' attorney Irven Box, Adams pleaded guilty to two counts of manslaughter in the deaths of his pregnant wife, Jaymie Adams, and her unborn child. The judge handed down a ten-year suspended sentence, which includes six months jail time. But Adams was released after he got credit for time already served.

Jaymie Adams was last seen December 9, 2011. Her body was found on January 7, 2012 near a dirt bike trail at Lake Stanley Draper. Prosecutors suggest Adams played a role in her death by posting sexually explicit ads for his wife on Craigslist.

"He doesn't want to take a chance again. He doesn't trust the system. He doesn't believe that he wants to take a chance of going back to jail for one day, when he can get a probation," said Box on Wednesday. "I told him I didn't think it was a good idea. But it's his choice. He made the choice to do what he did today."
