Jury begins deliberations on depraved-heart murder in silicone buttocks injection case

A jury has begun deliberations in the depraved-heart murder trial of a woman accused of helping to arrange the silicone buttocks injections that authorities say killed a woman.

The jury began deliberating late Friday in the case of Natasha Stewart of suburban Memphis, Tenn., who is on trial in Jackson, Miss., in the 2012 death of Karima Gordon of Atlanta.

Authorities say Stewart, an adult entertainer also known as Pebbelz Da Model, took $200 for a referral to the alleged injector and falsely claimed the injector was a nurse. Stewart is also charged with wire fraud, conspiracy to commit murder and conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

Depraved-heart murder is defined as a "callous disregard for human life" and results in death. It carries a maximum penalty of life in prison.
