The Jan. 27 trial of a woman charged with arranging the unlicensed buttocks injections that killed a Georgia woman in 2012 could be postponed because an expert defense witness has not filed a report.
Adult entertainer Natasha Stewart, who uses the name Pebbelz Da Model, is charged with depraved-heart murder and other counts in the death of 37-year-old Karima Gordon, of Atlanta.
Prosecutors say Gordon paid Stewart $200 for a referral to the suspected injector.
Authorities say Gordon died from blood clots in her lungs days after being injected with a silicone-type substance.
Hinds County Circuit Court Judge Bill Gowan said Friday that the defense may have to hire a new witness. He says he'll continue the trial if prosecutors need time to prepare arguments based on the expert's findings.
