A woman who calls herself the "Black Madam" has been ordered to stand trial in Philadelphia over allegations she administered illegal buttocks injections.

Padge Windslowe, 42, is charged with aggravated assault and deceptive practices.

At a preliminary hearing, an exotic dancer testified that she paid 1,000 dollars (£628) for the injections at a "pumping party" in Philadelphia.

She said Windslowe had silicon in a water bottle and used Krazy Glue to close four injection sites. The dancer said she later suffered serious lung damage and was in hospital for two weeks.

Police believe Windslowe also injected a 20-year-old London tourist who died last year. No charges have been filed in that death as detectives await post mortem test results.

Windslowe is being held on 750,000 dollars (£471,000) bail.
