Miss. Man Charged In Buttocks Implant Death

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi authorities say they have charged a Jackson man with depraved heart murder after a Georgia woman died from an injection received as part of an illegal buttocks implant.

Attorney General Jim Hood said Tuesday that Morris Garner, who dresses as a woman and goes by the name of Tracey Lynn Garner, did the procedure in March at his house.

Hood said Morris, 52, is charged in the death of Karima Gordon. Gordon died in the Atlanta area a few days after the procedure.

Hood said Gordon met Garner through someone in New York City known to authorities only as “Pebbles.”

Depraved-heart murder is a legal term for an action that demonstrates a “callous disregard for human life” and results in death. It carries a life sentence.
