Reports DNAInfo New York:
Allison Spence, 44, of Queens on Thursday was charged with manslaughter and unauthorized practice of a profession in the July death of Latesha Bynum, 31.
Bynum on July 15 had received silicone butt implants at an unlicensed facility at 319 E. 21st St., then began experiencing dizziness and chest pains at her Harlem home later that night, police said.
She was rushed to St. Luke’s Hospital in Harlem, where she died nearly two weeks later after being taken off life support, according to authorities.
The Office of the Medical Examiner this month ruled the death a homicide, and determined the cause to be complications from silicone butt injections.
The late Bynum met with a “nurse” at a Dunkin’ Donuts that was reportedly used a waiting room by the person who performed the fatal procedure.
The injections occurred at a residential building on E. 21st St. near Stuyvesant Town where Spence, who seems to have no medical training, acted as a nurse. .
However, the physician has not yet been arrested but the cops are still looking for him.
According to the New York Daily News, Spence used to date the “physician.”
