PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Philadelphia woman who calls herself the
"Black Madam" was ordered Wednesday to stand trial on allegations
she administered illegal buttock-injections, procedures that authorities say caused serious medical problems in at least one case.

Padge Windslowe, 42, faces charges of aggravated assault and deceptive practices related to a so-called pumping party in Philadelphia.

An exotic dancer testified at a preliminary hearing Wednesday that she paid $1,000 for the injections on a dining room table. She said she met Windslowe through fellow dancers. The dancer said Windslowe had silicon in a water bottle and used Krazy Glue to close four injection sites.

The 23-year-old said she later suffered serious lung damage and
was hospitalized for more than two weeks with respiratory problems.
A doctor testified that the dancer has silicone particles on her lungs that can't be removed and can prove fatal.

Police believe Windslowe also injected 20-year-old London tourist Claudia Aderotimi, who died last year. Aderotimi complained of chest pain and difficulty breathing following the procedure at a hotel near Philadelphia International Airport. No charges have been filed in her death as detectives await extensive autopsy test results.

Windslowe was being held on $750,000 bail.
