A woman was arrested and charged after killing a man with a penis injection.

The New Jersey woman on Tuesday pleaded not guilty to causing the death of a man with a silicone injection to enlarge his penis.

Kasia Rivera, 35, could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted of involuntary manslaughter for the death of 22-year-old Justin Street.

Street, father of two children, had gone to Rivera on May 5 seeking a penile lengthening procedure, which prosecutors say Rivera announced in ads posted by local businesses.

Rivera, who performed the procedure in her apartment, apparently without a license or medical training, administered a silicone into the penis of Street, according to prosecutors.

Street died the next day. His death was a ruled homicide following an investigation and determination of a coroner that he had died of a silicone embolism. Rivera was indicted by a grand jury last month.

Investigators believe Rivera may have conducted similar unauthorized procedures from her apartment in East Orange, but prosecutors said the search for witnesses, and a public plea for people to step forward, have turned up nothing.

Rivera, who remains free on $75,000 bail, declined to comment through her attorney appointed by the court this week.
