    Padge-Victoria Windslowe will go to trial on charges that one woman died and another came close to dying after she illegally injected silicone into their rear-ends at voluntary “pumping parties” on Feb. 17, 2015.

    Proceedings were initially scheduled to start this week but, according to a release from the District Attorney’s Office, was delayed as the defense attorney for Windslowe (aka the Black Madam) is currently on trial in another case.

    Windslowe was arrested in early 2012 when police raided a home on East Pastorius Street in Germantown before an alleged “pumping party” was about to begin.

    She allegedly played a role in the fatal butt-enhancement procedure performed on 20-year-old British student Claudia Aderotimi at the Hampton Inn near Philadelphia International Airport in Feb. 2011.
