Dancer killed in Black Madam's botched surgery
A US woman known as "the Black Madam" performed deadly cosmetic surgery on a British dancer in an airport hotel room, then used glue to close the wounds and fled when the client went into respiratory distress, witnesses have said.
A judge upheld a third-degree murder charge against Padge Gordon after the dancer's friend gave evidence about getting silicone injections to enlarge their buttocks in February last year.
Theresa Gyamfi said Gordon gave them the injections in their room at the Hampton Inn in Philadelphia and left when 20-year-old Claudia Aderotimi started having trouble breathing.
Ms Gyamfi (22) said they'd had the same procedure months earlier with no problems and had come back for a "touch-up".
