MEXICO CITY (AP) - Prosecutors say that doses of the cosmetic treatment Botox allegedly allowed illegally into a Mexico City prison were not used on jailed drug cartel suspect Sandra Avila Beltran, better known as the "Queen of the Pacific."

Mexico City chief prosecutor Miguel Mancera says the prison's former warden has acknowledged using Botox.

But it is not clear if the alleged illicit shipment of Botox was the same one applied to the warden, who was fired after the scandal
erupted earlier this month.

Inmates are not allowed to receive such treatments behind bars,
but Mancera said Friday that Avila Beltran acknowledged talking to
a doctor in the prison about the drug.
