Manslaughter verdict in buttocks injection trial
Associated Press / 11:37 AM February 01, 2014
JACKSON, Mississippi — A U.S. woman has been found guilty of manslaughter for the illicit silicone buttocks injections that prosecutors say killed a woman in 2012.
Natasha Stewart was found guilty Friday in the death of 37-year-old Karima Gordon.
Stewart had faced a murder charge, but the jury was told it could consider the lesser charge of manslaughter.
Authorities say Stewart, an adult entertainer also known as Pebbelz Da Model, took $200 for a referral to the alleged injector and falsely represented that the injector was a nurse.
