Judge sets bond for butt injection suspect arrested on manslaughter charge

Oneal Ron Morris charged with manslaughter, practicing medicine without a license

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - A man accused of performing cosmetic buttocks injections with Fix-A-Flat and cement was arrested again Thursday after one of the alleged victims died.

Oneal Morris was charged with manslaughter, the Broward Sheriff's Office said. 

On Friday morning, a judge set bond at $100,000 for the manslaughter charge and $50,000 for practicing medicine without a license causing bodily harm.

READ: Warrant to arrest Morris

Morris was initially arrested in November on charges of practicing medicine without a license. He pleaded not guilty in that case in April.

Morris was accused of injecting a substance consisting of Fix-A-Flat, cement, mineral oil and superglue into a woman's buttocks. Investigators said he then sealed the incision with superglue.

At least three women made similar allegations against Morris and claimed to have suffered medical problems after the injections.

BSO said Thursday that one of the women, Shatarka Nuby, 32, of Tamarac, died in March after what an assistant medical examiner called "massive systemic silicone migration" from cosmetic injections.

In court on Friday, Morris' attorney said that Nuby had breast implants and liposuction after Morris' injections and that she may have died as a result of that procedure and not necessarily from the injections she received from Nuby.

Investigators said Nuby had paid Morris, whom she knew as Dutchess, hundreds of dollars for injections of an unknown substance in her buttocks, hips, thighs and breasts, and that the injection sites were sealed with superglue and cotton balls.

Home video shows Nuby smiling, and showing her newly-enhanced backside to friends. A friend can be heard in the video telling Nuby that she looked "perfect."

Cynthia Thompson, Nuby's aunt, said she may have been smiling in the video, but she was in excruciating pain.

"She was sick for a long time," Thompson said.

On Thursday, family members said they were relieved that Morris had been arrested.
