The wheels of justice sure do grind slowly.
Sandra Yaneth Perez-Gonzalez, 49, (aka Sandra Yaneth Slaughter) was operating as a massage therapist in Long Beach, California. On 12 February 2014 Hamilet Suarez, a 36 year-old woman, walked into her parlour and asked for her buttocks to be enlarged.
Perez-Gonzalez obliged. But the now buttocks-fattened Suarez collapsed, went into cardiac arrest, and shortly afterwards died at a hospital.
Two years on and the police have finally charged Perez-Gonzalez with murder; she has entered a plea of not guilty.
The prosecution says Perez-Gonzalez has no medical licence. Nevertheless she advertised that she could do bum and lip jobs, and something called “vampire facelifts.”
