JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The trial of the woman accused of administering a fatal buttock injection to an Atlanta woman has been delayed for the second time.

Tracey Lynn Garner was supposed to go on trial in April, but the trial was delayed until Monday. Monday the trial was delayed again. The trial is now scheduled for Aug. 5.

Garner is charged with depraved heart murder in the death of Karima Gordon. Authorities say Gordon received a buttock enhancement in Garner's Jackson house in March 2012 and died three days later from the silicone-like substance.
