LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 42-year-old woman who police say died following a botched cosmetic surgical procedure in the care of two Colombian nationals has been identified as Elena Caro of Las Vegas.

The Clark County coroner’s office said Monday that Caro was pronounced dead at a hospital about 2:30 p.m. Saturday. A cause is pending.

A man who answered Caro’s telephone Monday wouldn’t provide his name or answer questions.

Las Vegas police say Caro was taken to a hospital from a business where she had been dropped off Saturday for a cosmetic surgical procedure.

Police say 55-year-old Ruben Dario Matallana-Galvas and 47-year-old Carmen Olfidia Torres-Sanchez were arrested at McCarran International Airport preparing to board a flight for Colombia.

They’re being held at the Clark County jail pending a court appearance on murder charges.
