Jamie Baker was also told not to have any interaction with the family of James Baker, according to the News Journal.
Jamie L Baker allegedly found 42-year-old husband, James D. Baker II, dead on Sept. 16 2013, on the bedroom floor of their home. A year later, then 47-year-old Smyrna woman admitted to poisoning her husband.
An autopsy found that his kidneys contained ethylene glycol, a chemical found in antifreeze that can crystallize in the kidneys and eventually kill a person if taken in small dosages. She subsequently pled guilty to second-degree murder last month, three years after James Baker died of the glycol poisoning.
