Claudia Aderotimi's death prompted US police to investigate 'pumping parties'

A British dancer's death at a US airport hotel has led police to investigate "pumping parties" and illegal cosmetic surgery.

An aspiring rapper known as "the Black Madam" is accused of killing the 20-year-old dancer from London during a procedure that involved silicone buttocks injections and Krazy Glue.

Padge Victoria Windslowe's third-degree murder trial is expected to start in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court.

Police say that Windslowe fled the hotel room after Claudia Aderotimi started having trouble breathing during "a touch-up" to celebrate her birthday in 2011.

A coroner has testified that the industrial-grade silicone spread to her lungs and brain and caused a pulmonary embolism.

The defence is expected to challenge the medical evidence.

Windslowe also is charged with practising medicine without a licence.
