Woman charged over silicone death

A woman has been charged with murder in the US over the death of a British woman killed by a buttocks-enhancing silicone injection.

Police said Padge Windslowe, who calls herself the "Black Madam," was arrested over last year's death of 20-year-old Claudia Aderotimi at a Philadelphia hotel.

Windslowe was first arrested in February as police say she prepared to host a so-called "pumping party." Authorities say one of her customers had serious lung problems as a result of an injection.

Authorities said they knew Windslowe injected Ms Aderotimi, from Hackney, London, but had been awaiting test results from the Food and Drug Administration before making a determination in the death.
