Black Madam Convicted Of Murder For Fatal Butt Injections
The madam who has bragged about being “the Michelangelo of buttocks injections” and claimed that Amber Rose is “a walking billboard” for her work has been convicted of murder, My Fox Philly reports.
In case you haven’t been following the trial, prosecutors accused Padge-Victoria Windslowe,45, of killing London break-dancer, Claudia Aderotimi, 20, who Windslowe administered fatal butt injections to in an airport hotel back in 2011. According to prosecutors, Windslowe, who has no experience in professional medicine, presented herself to Aderotimi as a physician’s assistant. Shortly after the procedure when the victim complained of chest pain, Windslowe continued her act.
“She put her hand on this young lady’s chest as if she were doing an exam,” Assistant District Attorney Bridget Kirn said. “But there was no exam.”
The verdict was revealed earlier today by a jury. Closing arguments were presented on Friday, leaving the group to determine Windslowe’s fate. They were trying to decide whether to convict Windslowe of murder or involuntary manslaughter.
“I was the best, and I don’t mean that to be cocky,” Windslowe, bragged earlier in the trial in an attempt to explain why celebrities would come to her instead of licensed plastic surgeons.
In addition to the murder charge, Windslowe was convicted of aggravated assault relating to serious injuries sustained by Sherkeei King, 23, who received injections from Windslowe at a February 2012 “pumping party” in East Germantown. She was later hospitalized after silicone entered her blood stream, traveling to her heart and lungs. Doctors testified that both organs were permanently damaged by the procedure.
Windslowe’s defense attorney David Rudenstein argued that his client was not aware of the potential dangers associated with the illegal injections because she was only familiar with satisfied customers.
“Clearly with all the information from this case, we know it shouldn’t be done, it’s too risky,” Rudenstein said. “We know that now. But we didn’t know that then.”
Windslowe testified that she performed the procedures thousands of times since 1995.
Obviously, the jury wasn’t buying their defense. Windslowe faces 20 to 40 years behind bars on the murder charge alone. It is currently unclear when she will be sentenced.
