BERLIN —

A 56-year-old anesthesiologist has been convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the death of a German porn star who had a heart attack during a breast-enlargement operation.

The dpa news agency reported Tuesday that the Hamburg hospital doctor, identified only by the initials M.F. to protect her identity according to German law, was given a 15-month suspended sentence.

The anesthesiologist was found guilty by the Hamburg state court of not ensuring that 23-year-old Carolin Wosnitza, who went by the stage name "Sexy Cora" had enough oxygen during the 2011 cosmetic surgery. The actress, who also appeared on the Big Brother Germany reality television show, died several days after the botched procedure.

During the trial, the anesthesiologist told the court she took responsibility for Wosnitza's death.
