Dallas Woman Gets 5 Years for Butt Injection Death in Missouri
A Dallas woman was sentenced to five years in prison for causing a nightclub dancer's death by performing an illegal cosmetic butt injection on her in Missouri. Nitica Deonte Lee, 49, was sentenced Thursday for involuntary manslaughter in the 2015 death of Daysha Phillips, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Prosecutors said Lee traveled from her Dallas home to a hotel in Edmundson, a suburb near St. Louis’ main airport, where she injected the liquid silicone. Phillips, who was 22, died four days later after the silicone entered her bloodstream and became trapped in her lungs.
