Padge-Victoria Windslowe was found guilty of murder on Monday in the death of a dancer she injected with liquid silicone in an illegal buttocks-enhancement procedure.

Windslowe, 45, who goes by a number of aliases including the Black Madam, claimed she had done thousands of injections successfully, despite having no formal medical training other than what she allegedly learned from the overseas doctor who performed her sex change, the Associated Press reports.

But no amount of training could save 20-year-old Claudia Aderotimi, who died in 2011 after Windslowe injected her with nearly half a gallon of silicone.

Windslowe made a number of sensational claims during the trial, calling model Amber Rose “a walking billboard” for her work and name-dropping Nicki Minaj.

“I was the best, and I don’t mean that to be cocky,” she testified.

Prosecutors called Windslowe “reckless,” noting her penchant for cutting the industrial-grade silicone she used for injections with saline in a home blender. Industrial-grade silicone is normally used to lubricate machinery, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Evidence showed that Windslowe hosted “pumping parties,” where she’d perform the illegal injections, then seal the open wounds with Krazy Glue. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration banned the injection of liquid silicone in humans in 1991.

Windslowe was convicted of third-degree murder in the death of Aderotimi, as well as aggravated assault for injuries to a Philadelphia woman hospitalized in 2012 after a pumping party. She was also convicted on two counts of possession of an instrument of a crime for using low-quality silicone.
