SALISBURY, N.C. (AP) — Police in North Carolina say a woman faces second-degree murder charges after allegedly injecting a teen with nonmedical silicone in a plastic surgery procedure at her home.
Salisbury police tell local media outlets that 42-year-old Kavonceya Iman Cornelius turned herself in Monday after warrants were issued.
According to police, an investigation showed 19-year-old Eugene Jones II went to Cornelius’ home for silicone injections. Investigators say Jones went back to Fayetteville, where he died from the procedure on Jan. 12.
Police were later notified that an out-of-state victim who received similar injections is now experiencing health problems.
