DALLAS (AP) — Two salon workers are facing murder charges in the death of a Dallas woman after she had silicone injections to increase the size of her buttocks.

Dallas County court records show a murder warrant was issued Wednesday for 43-year-old Denise Ross. Jail records show 32-year-old Jimmy Joe Clarke was freed on $45,000 bond on a murder count.

Both already were charged with practicing medicine without a license following the February death of 34-year-old Wykesha Reid.

The coroner's office Tuesday said Reid died of pulmonary silicone embolization, associated with cosmetic silicone injections.

Her family says Reid visited the salon Feb. 18 for a cosmetic procedure. Her body was found at the shop the next day.

Attorneys for Ross and Clarke didn't immediately return messages Wednesday seeking comment about the charges.
