JACKSON, Miss. -- 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, performed the procedure at his house last March.

Hood said Morris, 52, is charged in the death of Karima Gordon. She died a few days later in Atlanta.

The charge of depraved-heart murder demonstrates a "callous disregard for human life" and results in death. It carries a life sentence.

Deaths from illegal cosmetic procedures happen sporadically around the country. A New Jersey woman is currently charged with giving a fatal dose of silicone during a penile enhancement.
