PHILADELPHIA (AP) — An aspiring hip-hop artist who boasts about her talent for underground “body sculpting” has one last chance to impress a jury before the panel weighs murder charges against her in a dancer’s death.
Padge Victoria Windslowe says clients chose her over licensed surgeons because of her deft work. But authorities believe Windslowe caused the 20-year-old London woman’s death in 2011 and injured several other women through shoddy silicone injections.
The 45-year-old Windslowe has been testifying since Thursday afternoon and faces more cross-examination this week.
She says she has performed thousands of buttocks enhancements for adult entertainers, transgender women and run-of-the-mill women seeking more “self-esteem.”
Windslowe faces 20 to 40 years in prison if convicted of third-degree murder. She has been in prison since 2012.
