Prison for adult performer in buttocks-shot death

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) An adult entertainer has been sentenced to seven years in prison for helping set up an illegal silicone buttocks injection that killed an Atlanta woman.

Natasha Stewart was convicted of manslaughter in the 2012 death of 37-year-old Karima Gordon.

Stewart, who goes by the professional name of Pebbelz Da Model, took $200 to refer Gordon to the injector and falsely said she was a nurse.

Hinds County Circuit Judge Bill Gowan on Friday sentenced Stewart of suburban Memphis, Tenn., to seven years in prison and eight years of suspended time for manslaughter. He ordered her to serve five years at the same time on a conspiracy to commit culpable negligence manslaughter.

Stewart says she regrets Gordon's death and was blinded by desire for "outer beauty."
