Barreto, 43, and her husband, Ramon, allegedly traveled to Guatemala on multiple occasions in 2005 and 2006 to purchase children from a local adoption agency.

Dean said at one point, Adams claimed to have been a victim of a burglary where all the animal supplies were stolen from a local storage facility.
