(Scroll down for video) A woman who wanted to kill her professional bodybuilder husband, poisoned his steroids with antifreeze, according to police in Delaware.

Smyrna police said that they have arrested 47-year-old Jamie L. Baker, after being accused of poisoning to death her husband, 42-year-old James D. Baker II.

Jamie has been charged with one count of first-degree murder.

In court, Kamie pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree murder. She faces up to life in prison.

According to the criminal complaint, James worked as a professional bodybuilder and took steroids to sculpt his figure.

One morning, James was found dead on the bedroom floor of his home by his wife Jamie. An autopsy revealed that James had a large amount of ethylene glycol in his body.

Jamie then admitted to injecting antifreeze into her husband’s steroids in order to kill him. The ethylene glycol of the antifreeze built up in James’ kidneys until it killed him.
