Woman found guilty of manslaughter in buttocks injections death

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - A Memphis woman was found guilty of manslaughter in Mississippi in a buttocks injections murder trial, according to the Associated Press.

Natasha Stewart is now convicted of helping to arrange the silicone buttocks injection that authorities say killed a woman in 2012.

Authorities say Stewart, an adult entertainer also known as Pebbelz Da Model, took $200 for a referral to the alleged injector and falsely claimed the injector was a nurse.

Stewart testified Friday that the victim, Karima Gordon, was insecure about her body and wanted help fixing previously botched buttocks enhancements. Stewart said she connected Gordon with the woman performing the injections to help her out, not for money, but she said Gordon insisted on paying her.

Stewart also testified that she thought the woman performing the injections at a Jackson house was indeed a registered nurse and had gotten the injections herself more than 20 times over seven years, according to the Associated Press.

Prosecutors say Gordon died from silicone in her lungs a few days after getting the shots in March 2012.
