A Dallas woman was sentenced to five yrs in jail for causing a nightclub dancer’s loss of life by executing an illegal beauty butt injection on her in Missouri.
Nitica Deonte Lee, 49, was sentenced Thursday for involuntary manslaughter in the 2015 death of Daysha Phillips, the St. Louis Article-Dispatch reported.
Prosecutors said Lee traveled from her Dallas household to a lodge in Edmundson, a suburb in the vicinity of St. Louis’ principal airport, exactly where she injected the liquid silicone. Phillips, who was 22, died 4 times later on right after the silicone entered her bloodstream and turned trapped in her lungs.
A few other people accompanied Phillips. One backed out, and two other folks who received injections didn’t show up to suffer any ill consequences, law enforcement stated at the time.
Lee, who previously served time in jail for theft, theft and theft, was charged a couple of months right after Phillips died. But she was a fugitive for five years prior to becoming arrested by Dallas law enforcement in July. Prosecutors mentioned she used some of that time in Mexico.
