Kasia Rivera, 38, of East Orange, New Jersey, admitted Tuesday to delivering the silicone injection that killed Justin Street in May 2011, NJ.com (http://bit.ly/1Nq64fF ) reports .

Authorities say Mr Street went to Rivera's home so she could inject his penis with silicone, which he hoped would enlarge it. A medical examiner determined that the 22-year-old died of a silicone embolism and ruled the death a homicide.

Rivera acknowledged that she wasn't a trained doctor or licensed to administer the injection.

Prosecutors have agreed to recommend a sentence of five years in state prison. A judge told Rivera she could also be deported back to Jamaica.

Her sentencing is scheduled for October 19.
