DALLAS (AP) — The February death of a Dallas woman who had cosmetic injections at a salon to increase the size of her buttocks has been ruled a homicide.

The Dallas County Medical Examiner’s Office on Tuesday said Wykesha Reid died of pulmonary silicone embolization, associated with cosmetic silicone injections.

Two salon workers were charged with practicing medicine without a license following Reid’s death. Messina Madison with the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office said Tuesday that prosecutors are preparing to bring murder charges against the two workers.

Both remain free on bond. Online court records don’t indicate any pleas on the original charge.

Reid’s family has said the 34-year-old woman visited the salon Feb. 18 for a cosmetic procedure. Her body was found there the next morning. The autopsy was completed Friday.
