JACKSON, Miss.- Authorities say a second person has been charged in an illegal buttocks implant in Mississippi that killed a Georgia woman in March.

The Mississippi attorney general's office said Monday that 39-year-old Natasha Stewart of Memphis, Tenn., was arrested Jan. 3. She will be returned to Mississippi.

Stewart, who also goes by Pebbelz, was indicted on charges of murder, wire fraud, conspiracy to commit murder and conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

It wasn't immediately clear whether she had an attorney.

Morris Garner, who also goes by Tracey Lynn Garner, was previously charged with depraved-heart murder and is said to have performed the procedure at his house in Jackson, Miss.

Investigators have said the silicone-like substance that was injected into 37-year-old Karima Gordon caused blood clots in her lungs and killed her.
