Jamie Baker, the Delaware woman charged with killing her bodybuilder husband by contaminating his bottles of steroids with antifreeze pleaded guilty in a Delaware court on Monday.

According to prosecutors, the 47-year-old Jamie Baker is facing 15 years to life in prison after pleading guilty in the September 2013 poisoning death of her husband, 42-year-old competitive weightlifter James Baker.

Police investigators arrested the woman in March of 2014 on charges of first-degree murder after autopsy results discovered ethylene glycol, the chemical is derived in antifreeze in her husband’s system.

In the months leading up to her arrest, Baker had posted on Facebook about missing her husband.

Officials said Jamie Baker confessed to investigators how she injected antifreeze into her husband’s bottles of liquid steroids but never revealed her motive for wanting to kill her spouse, Delaware Online reported.

Baker entered a guilty plea to the charge of second-degree murder Monday in Kent County Superior Court in Dover Delaware.

A judge has scheduled her sentencing for March 30th.
