Woman used an­tifreeze to kill hus­band

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A WIFE has ad­mit­ted mur­der­ing her hus­band of 21 years by lac­ing his steroid in­jec­tions with an­tifreeze.

Jamie Baker, 47, had de­nied mur­der­ing her weightlifter hus­band James D Baker II, 42, af­ter he col­lapsed in their bed­room on Septem­ber 16, 2013.

But an in­ves­ti­ga­tion found that he had been slowly killed with eth­yl­ene gly­col – a sub­stance found in an­tifreeze – and Baker con­fessed her guilt.

An au­topsy found eth­yl­ene gly­col in­side the kid­neys. In small doses, it crys­tal­lizes in­side the or­gans, even­tu­ally caus­ing death.

Bot­tles of steroids dis­cov­ered at the scene were found to con­tain the sub­stance.

Jamie Baker ( above) ad­mit­ted she had used a hy­po­der­mic nee­dle to drain a con­tainer of an­tifreeze in their garage and in­ject the bot­tles with it.

She gave po­lice no rea­son for the killing as she ad­mit­ted mur­der in Dover, Delaware.

She faces 15 years to life when sen­tenced next month. THE Bas­sian Thrush farts when feed­ing; this star­tles worms into re­veal­ing their lo­ca­tion.
