The so-called “Black Madam” who called herself “the Michelangelo of butt injections” has been sentenced to at least 10 years in jail for the murder of a British dancer.

Padge-Victoria Windslowe, 43, could spend up to 20 years in prison for killing one woman and badly hurting another by giving them injections of industrial-strength silicone in their rear ends to increase the size, various news organizations report Philadelphia Judge Rose DeFino-Nastasi ruled Thursday.

The injections killed Claudia Aderotimi, 20, an exotic dancer from London who traveled to Philadelphia in 2011 for the procedure. Aderotimi died when the silicone entered her bloodstream, according to NBC in Philadelphia. Industrial-strength silicone is used in underground plastic surgery procedures, though it presents health risks.

After her prison term, Windslowe will serve six years on probation, NBC in Philadelphia reports.

Addressing the court, Windslowe said, “I’m truly sorry for the people I harmed, but know from the bottom of my heart that it wasn’t malice,” according to the International Business Times.

The jury also found Windslowe guilty of aggravated assault in the injury of another woman who received the injections and later suffered from a pulmonary embolism. Today, the woman experiences breathing problems, the IBT reports.

“She can’t play with her son like other moms because she’s short of breath,” the IBT quoted Assistant District Attorney Carlos Vega as saying. “She, being a single mother, doesn’t have the luxury of dying.”

Windslowe was arrested in 2012 in Philadelphia as she prepared to host a “pumping party” where she was to inject clients.
