In ancient Israel, if a woman committed adultery, could a husband spare her of the death penalty?

Hi.

I hope everyone is having a great 2021 so far.

My understanding is adultery was considered an offense against the husband of the wife, which makes sense for a nomadic people concerned about issues such as paternity and (by extension) inheritance.

Being the case, could a husband spare his wife’s life in such a case?
