    A Queens woman has been arrested on manslaughter charges in the silicone buttocks injection death of a 31-year-old woman in Manhattan.

    Police say 44-year-old Allison Spence also faces charges of unauthorized practice of a profession in the July death of Latesha Bynum, of Harlem.

    Bynum died after complaining of dizziness and chest pains to officers responding to a 911 call at a building in Gramercy Park.

    The medical examiner said she died from complications of systemic embolization of silicone injections for cosmetic augmentation.

    Bynum is to be arraigned in Manhattan on Friday. Information on her lawyer wasn't immediately available.
