An adult entertainer has been found guilty of manslaughter in connection with illegal silicone buttocks injections that prosecutors say killed a woman in 2012.

Natasha Stewart, from suburban Memphis, Tennessee, was convicted in Jackson, Mississippi, over the death of Karima Gordon, 37, of Atlanta, Georgia.

Stewart had been charged with "depraved-heart" murder, but the jury was told it could consider the lesser charge of culpable negligence manslaughter.

She was also convicted of conspiracy to commit culpable negligence manslaughter and faces up to 20 years in prison for each charge.

Authorities say Stewart, also known as Pebbelz Da Model, took $200 for a referral to the alleged injector and claimed falsely that the injector was a nurse.

Stewart was cleared of wire fraud and conspiracy to commit wire fraud.
