JACKSON, MS (WSFA) -

Authorities in Mississippi are confirming that the suspect in a Selma resident's death is now charged with murder after giving the patient injections to enhance her buttocks even though she had no medical training.

The victim, Marilyn Hale, died after the January 13, 2010 medical procedure.

This is the second death connected to the illegal medical procedures of Tracey Lynn Garner, 53, a transgender female who formerly went by the name Morris Garner.

WLBT-TV in Jackson says Garner is now facing two charges of depraved heart murder.

Garner was under house arrest facing charges in another depraved heart murder case involving the death of Atlanta, GA, resident Karima Gordon.

Gordon died after having injections in her breasts and buttocks as part of aspirations to become a model.

If convicted, Garner could face a life sentence in prison.
