NEW YORK (AP) - A New Jersey woman has pleaded guilty to manslaughter and assault in connection with the death of a New York City woman who had been injected with silicone in her buttocks.

Tamira Mobley, of Wood-Ridge, met Tamara Blaine at Manhattan’s Liberty Inn Hotel in July of 2013. Emergency responders were called to the scene some time later, to find Blaine barely conscious.

Police say Mobley said only that Blaine had had a seizure. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Her death was ruled a homicide after the medical examiner determined she had been injected with silicone which went into her veins.

PIX11 News (https://bit.ly/2jDZDOS) reports that Mobley entered her plea on Monday. Information on her lawyer wasn’t immediately available. She faces 1 1/3 to 4 years in prison.
