PHILADELPHIA — A Philadelphia woman who calls herself the “Black Madam” is due in court Wednesday in the death of a London woman who died after getting cosmetic surgery at an airport hotel.

Padge Windslowe is charged with killing 20-year-old Claudia Aderotimi. Police say the tourist came to Philadelphia in February 2011 to receive silicone injections that enlarge the buttocks.

Police say Windslowe left the hotel room even after Aderotimi complained of chest pains and breathing problems. The young woman died hours later.

Police spent more than a year investigating before charging Windslowe with third-degree murder.

They’ve also charged Windslowe with injuring an exotic dancer who spent two weeks in the hospital after Windslowe allegedly used silicone and Krazy Glue to perform a similar procedure. A judge has upheld those charges.
