Cosmetic procedure -- UPDATE


A man accused of practicing medicine without a license is scheduled to be arraigned this morning after a 23-year-old woman died Sunday after authorities say he gave her liposuction in a Framingham basement.

The Middlesex District Attorney’s office said that Luis Carlos Ribeiro will be arraigned in Framingham District Court today on charges of practicing medicine without a license and possession of class A and class E substances with intent to distribute.

Police arrested Ribeiro at 4:30 a.m. today. Doctors expect to perform an autopsy today to determine how Fabiola de Paula died. On Sunday, investigators released few details about the death of the Brazilian native.
