Woman guilty of manslaughter in silicone buttocks injections

Natasha Stewart Shelby County Jail

JACKSON, Miss. - A woman has been found guilty of manslaughter in connection with the illicit silicone buttocks injections that prosecutors say killed a Georgia woman in 2012.

Natasha Stewart, of suburban Memphis, Tenn., was found guilty Friday in Jackson, Miss., in the death of 37-year-old Karima Gordon of Atlanta.

Stewart had been charged with "depraved-heart" murder, but the jury was told it could consider the lesser charge of culpable negligent manslaughter. She was also convicted of conspiracy to commit culpable negligent manslaughter. She faces up to 20 years in prison for each charge.

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.

Stewart was found not guilty on charges of wire fraud and conspiracy to commit wire fraud.
