NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities charged a New Jersey woman with manslaughter in connection to the death of a New York City woman whose buttocks had been injected with silicone.

Tamira Mobley, of Wood-Ridge, N.J., appeared in state Supreme Court in Manhattan on Tuesday. She also faces an assault charge in connection with the death of Tamara Blaine in July 2013. Her bail was set at $100,000.

Her attorney did not return a call seeking comment.

Authorities said Mobley met Blaine at the Liberty Inn hotel last July. Emergency responders were called to the hotel some time later, to find Blaine barely conscious.

Police said Mobley said only that Blaine had had a seizure. She was pronounced dead at a hospital. Her death was ruled a homicide in October, when the medical examiner’s office determined she had been injected with silicone, which went into her veins, causing asphyxiation.

Authorities said investigators found messages between the two women showing they had met for silicone injections three times before, and other messages that showed appointments with other people. Investigators did not find any medical license for Mobley.
