The Dailymail reports:
A North Carolina woman is facing second-degree murder charges after performing unlicensed silicone injections on
a transgender teen, causing her death.
Kavonceya Iman Cornelius, 42, who is also transgender, performed the fake plastic surgery on 19-year-old Symone Marie Jones – born Eugene Jones II.
Jones died after receiving the ‘off-market’ implants from Cornelius at her Salisbury home, which poisoned her blood and killed her.
Jones’ family said that on January 5 she traveled to Cornelius’ home on the 500 block of Union Heights Boulevard in Salisbury to receive the implants.
She died just a few days later on January 12.
Cornelius was using non-medical grade silicone and was not licensed to perform the procedure.
