US woman gets life for bad butt job

Jackson - A Mississippi woman convicted of killing a Georgia woman through illicit silicone buttocks injections has been sentenced to life in prison.

Tracy Lynn Garner of Jackson, Mississippi, was sentenced Tuesday in a county court.

Garner was convicted on Friday of depraved heart murder and conspiracy to commit wire fraud. She was sentenced to five years on the wire fraud charge.

Garner was charged in the death of Karima Gordon who, prosecutors say, was lured to Jackson by Garner to perform the injections. The defence rested on Friday without calling a witness after the prosecution finished its case.

Prosecutors say Gordon and a friend were referred to Garner by Natasha Stewart, an adult entertainer also known as Pebbelz Da Model. Stewart was convicted of manslaughter in Garner's death and sentenced to seven years.

News24 writes "Stewart was convicted of manslaughter in Garner's death and sentenced to seven years". How can Garner be dead when she is given life. This is wrong reporting. Perhaps you mean to write Stewart was convicted of manslaughter in Gordon's death and sentenced to seven years.
