& # 39; He has been chosen to go to work rather than go to court to be seriously charged, & # 39; said Judge David Wilson when he said Russell would not appear because of his new job.

The judge ordered Russell to appear before him on Friday, expecting him to plead guilty feelings and to set a trial date.

His lawyer is expected to sign up for separate trials for Russell and his co-accused body responsible Howard Rollins on Friday.

The police claim that Russell implanted the snowflake under Samantha Hegyl's right hand in early 2017, but when she complained that she was in pain, the body modifier allegedly told her to visit him and not go to the hospital.

Russell then reportedly turned the snowflake and inserted a second into Mrs. Hegyl's heavily infected hand, but she died weeks later.

Russell is also accused of using a branding iron to maim the genitals of another female client.

Court documents claimed that Russell, who is not a qualified physician, has his & # 39; modification name & # 39; Has used Bslicedotcom on social media, maimed the woman by burning & # 39; the big labia of the victim with a branding iron & # 39; early 2016 in Newcastle West.

Russell's third alleged victim was a woman who visited his Erina tattoo and body modification business at the end of 2016 for a & # 39; tummy tuck & # 39; but ended up in the hospital with a five-cent hole in her skin and severed abdominal muscles.

Rollins, 42 – who themselves & # 39; Luna Cobra & # 39; mentions – appeared in court on Thursday, where he formally pleaded not to be guilty of complicity in female genital mutilation.

Rollins is accused of coaching Russell to carry out the 2016 procedure where the marker would have been used.

Body modification is not regulated in NSW, but members of the so-called skin penetration industry must comply with public health regulations.

Russell & # 39; s Instagram profile included images of cleft tongues, implants under the skin and & # 39; scarification & # 39; – etching or burning of permanent designs in the skin.
