A Queens woman has been sentenced to 2 to 8 years in prison in connection with the silicone buttocks injection death of a 31-year-old woman in Manhattan.

Forty-four-year-old Allison Spence was sentenced on Thursday after pleading guilty to manslaughter and unauthorized practice of a profession.

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

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