(Newser) – Tracey Lynn Garner had already been charged with murder in one silicone butt injection death, and now she's been charged in a second, the Clarion-Ledger reports. Garner (who, authorities say, is a man also known as Morris Garner who lives as a woman) is accused of illegally injecting counterfeit silicone into two women, both of whom later died, despite the fact that she was neither trained nor licensed, the AP reports. She was first arrested last year after Karima Gordon died of a blood clot in her lung a few days after the injection. Now authorities say a similar thing happened in 2010 with a woman named Marilyn Hale.

Officials say Gordon found someone named "Pebbles" on the Internet, met up with her and paid her $200, and was referred to Garner for the procedure. Natasha Stewart, an adult entertainer also known as Pebbelz Da Model, has also been charged in the case. Last year, the Jackson Free Press identified Garner as a floral and interior designer, and reported that she performed the procedures in her Mississippi home.

Again I just don't feel it. These people that died weren't happy with their butts? I mean seriously? This isn't made up? That in itself is ridiculous enough but they agreed to let that crazy person inject their bodies with something thats not supposed to be in there? Uhm I call it assisted suicide! Honestly its the only conclusion I can come to.

Notice to all gay men. Butt injections are lethal. Especially when applied with a caulk gun.
