Pennsylvania Buttocks Injections Murder Case
(Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) A 45-year-old former madam known for performing illegal silicone injections into buttocks, Padge-Victoria Windslowe, has been convicted of murder in the death of a dancer she treated.
Authorities argued that she fled in 2011 after a botched injection killed Claudia Aderotimi, a 20-year-old London break-dancer and college student.Sentencing is scheduled for June 11.
The trial was halted for several days last week while Windslowe was hospitalized for chest pains. She has been in prison since 2012, when the confounding 18-month investigation led to a coroner's homicide ruling.[…]
The jury took less than four hours to reject a lesser manslaughter charge and convict her of third-degree murder, which involves malice, but not premeditation.
Windslowe was also convicted of aggravated assault for injuries to a Philadelphia woman hospitalized after the injections and two weapons counts — for using of low-quality silicone.
