Beauty salon death: Second woman charged with manslaughter

A SECOND woman has been charged with manslaughter over the death of a Sydney beauty clinic owner after a botched breast procedure.

Jean Huang, 35, died in hospital last Friday after she was allegedly given a local anaesthetic and breast fillers by Jie Shao, 33, at the Medi Beauty Laser and Contour Clinic in Chippendale on Wednesday, August 30.

Yesterday morning police arrested a 29-year-old woman and charged her with manslaughter, using poison to endanger life and hindering a police investigation. She was refused bail and is due to appear at Burwood Local Court today.

Shao, who doesn't have an Australian medical licence, was initially charged with causing reckless grievous bodily harm and using poison to endanger life.

But on Tuesday the Central Local Court heard she now faces an additional charge of manslaughter.

Shao will remain behind bars and is due to return to court on October 31.
