The woman accused of impersonating a nurse at the hospice where Bobbi Kristina Brown died is back in jail, this time in Gwinnett.

Taiwo Bolatito Sobamowo, 32, was booked into the Gwinnett County jail Sunday and charged with offenses including financial identity fraud, false identification documents and four counts of practicing registered nursing without a license. Authorities could not immediately be reached for comment, but the charges are believed to stem from her time at Duluth’s Peachtree Christian Hospice, where she worked from September 2014 until Aug. 5 of last year.

The hospice gained notoriety while caring for Bobbi Kristina Brown, the 22-year-old daughter of the late singer Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, before her death in July. A police report previously obtained by the Associated Press showed no indication that Brown’s care was affected by Sobamowo.

Sobamowo was fired when she couldn’t provide proof of a license, according to the Georgia Board of Nursing.

Sobamowo was originally detained Oct. 31 by authorities in Raleigh, N.C., who were acting on warrants issued out of Forsyth County, where she previously worked at a hospice in Cumming. In 2013, the District of Columbia Board of Nursing issued an alert regarding Sobamowo, who allegedly used someone else’s nursing license number to apply for a job in Washington, D.C.

Gwinnett jail records showed Sobamowo is being held without bond on the financial identity fraud charge, and also has a hold for Roswell police.
