A BRIT has pleaded guilty to killing a woman in botched bum lift in New York after posing as a cosmetic doctor.

Donna Francis, who was not a licensed beautician, admitted administering the silicone injections that killed Kelly Mayhew, 34.

After her patient’s death, Francis – who is originally from Loughton, Essex – fled to Britain to evade charges.

But she was extradited back to the US and pleaded guilty on Friday to criminally negligent homicide.

Kelly, 34, died minutes after Francis, 39, gave her the unlicensed silicone injections that had been bought from eBay.

The patient apparently “turned purple” and immediately went into shock after the third dose of silicone on 30 May 2015, reports say.

Authorities said the silicone entered Kelly’s bloodstream and killed her.

“In pleading guilty, the defendant has now admitted to causing the death of a young woman who sought a cosmetic procedure at a discount and paid with her life,” acting District Attorney John Ryan said.

Francis injected Kelly in the basement in a Queens neighbourhood that served as an illegal plastic surgery clinic, the district attorney said.

Kelly had travelled with her mother from Suitland, Maryland, and paid Francis $1,600 for a buttocks augmentation op, prosecutors said.

Francis’ attorney, Kevin O’Donnell, said his client is “incredibly remorseful” for Kelly’s death and will address the victim’s family at her sentencing on November 14.

Under the terms of the extradition agreement, Francis will face no more than a year behind bars.

In another unusual condition of her extradition, Francis will not serve any time at Rikers Island, the notorious jail complex that New York’s City Council voted Thursday to close by 2026.

Instead, Francis will be jailed in suburban Suffolk County.
