Miami: Venezuelan man has been charged with administering buttocks-enhancement injections that killed a Miami woman in 2013.

Jose Robusto, 43, was charged Saturday with manslaughter and practicing unlicensed medicine resulting in death.

He is accused of giving the injections that killed Suyima Torres, 28. The medical examiner's office ruled she died of an embolism.

The Miami Herald (http://tinyurl.com/zg57dqe ) reports Robusto is accused of performing the injections at a clinic that only had a license to give massages but advertised on Facebook that it had certified plastic surgeons.

Robuso is listed on the jail's website, but it's unclear whether he has an attorney.

After the death, Robusto left for his native Venezuela but was arrested when he returned to Miami on Friday.
