JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A woman convicted of killing a Georgia woman through illicit silicone buttocks injections has been sentenced to life in prison.

Tracy Lynn Garner was sentenced Tuesday in Hinds County Circuit Court.

Garner was convicted Friday of depraved heart murder and conspiracy to commit wire fraud. She was sentenced to five years on the wire fraud charge.

Garner was charged in the death of Karima Gordon who, prosecutors say, was lured to Jackson by Garner to perform the injections. The defense rested Friday without calling a witness. The prosecution had wrapped up its case.

Prosecutors say Gordon and a friend were referred to Garner by Natasha Stewart, an adult entertainer, who was convicted of manslaughter in Garner's death and is serving a seven-year prison sentence.
