  • A Philadelphia woman will stand trial on murder charges for allegedly performing a fatal cosmetic procedure on a London dancer at an airport hotel.
     
    A judge has upheld third-degree murder charges against Padge Gordon, who is also known as Padge Windslowe.
     
    The ruling comes after a friend of the dancer testified Wednesday that she and 20-year-old Claudia Aderotimi came to Philadelphia last year and had their buttocks enlarged.
     
    Theresa Gyamfi said Gordon gave them silicone injections in their hotel room — and left when Aderotimi went into respiratory distress.
     
    A doctor testified that the industrial-grade silicone went to her blood, liver, lungs and brain. He said Aderotimi died of a pulmonary embolism.
     
    But defense lawyer Christopher Mannix said he will challenge those medical conclusions at trial, along with allegations his client performed the injections.
