Natasha Stewart aka Pebbelz Da Model faces years in jail after being found guilty of manslaughter of Atlanta model Karima Gordon after arranging Gordon to get silicone butt injections by Tracey Lynn Garner, a transgender person posing as a nurse, that left Gordon dead.
On Friday in court in Jackson, MS, Stewart was found guilty by a jury deliberating the case of the butt injection death of Karima Gordon.
After jury deliberations, Stewart was found guilty of depraved-heart murder, wire fraud, conspiracy to commit murder and conspiracy to commit wire fraud.
Authorities says Stewart received $200 for referring Gordon to get illegal butt injections while Stewart, aka Pebbelz Da Model, testified she was only helping the ‘insecure’ victim out and not doing it for money, but the victim, Gordon, insisted on paying her.
Furthermore, Stewart says she believes that Garner was an actual registered nurse whom she had gotten multiple injections from up to 20 times over 7 years.
Stewart says she thought Garner was a registered nurse because that it what Garner told her.
Still, the jury disagreed with Stewart that she was just helping Gordon out and charged her with the death of Gordon. Karima Gordon died about a week after getting the illegal butt injections in March of 2012 from silicone embolism in the lungs.
Gordon reportedly had hopes of becoming a model in the hip hop industry after getting butt enhancements like Stewart’s.
Natasha Stewart, aka Pebbelz Da Model, now faces 20 years for each charge, while the depraved-heart murder carries a maximum penalty of life in prison.
