Defendant testifies in buttocks injections case

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- A woman charged with arranging illicit silicone buttocks injections has testified that she was only trying to help out a woman prosecutors say died from the shots.

Natasha Stewart, also known as Pebbelz Da Model, is charged with depraved-heart murder in the death of Karima Gordon of Atlanta.

Stewart, of suburban Memphis, Tenn., testified Friday that Gordon was insecure about her body and wanted help fixing a previously botched enhancement.

Authorities say Stewart took $200 to refer Gordon to the alleged injector and falsely represented that the injector was a nurse.

Stewart testified that she thought the injector was a nurse and had gotten the injections herself more than 20 times.

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