Trial opens Monday in buttocks injection case

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - The trial of a woman charged with helping arrange the unlicensed buttocks injections that prosecutors say killed a Georgia woman in 2012 is scheduled to begin Monday in Jackson.
    
Adult entertainer Natasha Stewart, also known as Pebbelz Da Model, is charged with depraved-heart murder and other counts in the death of 37-year-old Karima Gordon of Atlanta.
    
Prosecutors say Gordon paid Stewart $200 for a referral to the person suspected of performing the injections. That person, Tracey Lynn Garner, will go on trial in March.
    
Authorities say Gordon died from blood clots in her lungs days after being injected with a silicone-type substance.
    
Stewart has pleaded not guilty and faces trial in Hinds County Circuit Court. Her lawyers have declined to comment due to a gag order issued by the judge.
