UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) — Maryland authorities have charged a Philadelphia man with second-degree murder in the death of a woman who was given injections to make her buttocks larger.
The Prince George’s County Sheriff’s Office said Friday that 43-year-old Vinnie Taylor was charged with murder, assault and reckless endangerment after being extradited from St. Louis on Dec. 31. His attorney, Bethany Skopp, didn’t immediately respond to a message seeking comment Friday.
On March 20, the sheriff’s office says Taylor gave a woman butt injections at a hotel in Capitol Heights, Maryland, in suburban Washington, D.C.
The sheriff’s office says the woman became ill soon after, and died after checking herself into a local hospital. Her death was ruled a homicide.
Detectives say they couldn’t find any evidence that Taylor had any medical training.
