RIVERSIDE, Calif. -- Four women have pleaded guilty to the carpet-cutter slashing and disfigurement of a former Southern California beauty queen.

Detectives tell the Riverside Press-Enterprise the attack stemmed from a woman's suspicion that now-23-year-old Shanice Wilson was having an affair with her husband.

The former Banning "Peach Queen" pageant winner suffered permanent scars on her face and back when she was jumped by the women in 2008.

Riverside County prosecutors say 27-year-old Azia Aldred pleaded guilty on Wednesday to felony mayhem and assault with a deadly weapon causing great bodily injury. She was sentenced to 12 years in prison.

Twenty-four-year-old Erica Bastidas, 30-year-old Labrea Steward and 21-year-old Ariana Atkins pleaded guilty to felony assault causing great bodily injury. Bastidas got seven years, while Steward and Atkins got six years in prison.
