She had gotten the illegal buttocks injection numerous times from 2007 to 2011, authorities say, and died from acute and chronic respiratory failure from the silicone.

Oneal Ron Morris — who was born a man, identifies as a woman, and goes by the name of Duchess — is charged with Nuby's death. Nuby's aunt told investigators that she watched some of the injections. Morris' lawyer didn't respond to a message.

Morris told Nuby's aunt at one time that she was using silicone from Home Depot, according to a police affidavit that charged Morris with manslaughter in July 2012.

The aunt said she could "see the butt rise" when the substance was injected. It was sealed with cotton balls and superglue.

Morris, according to the affidavit, assured the women "that the substances she was injecting into Shatarka Nuby would not hurt her."
