Malcom X Daughter Held Without Bail

NEW YORK -  Authorities say a daughter of Malcolm X is being held without bail after violating terms of her probation.

According to the New York Post, Malikah Shabazz  is due back before a New York City judge on Jan. 6.
She was arrested at her home in Mars Hill, N.C., in February and later extradited to New York.

She was sentenced to five years of probation in July for stealing the identity of a family friend to run up credit card bills.

She pleaded guilty and was freed from jail in June and ordered to pay back the amount stolen.

Prosecutors in New York say Shabazz opened credit cards in the name of a 70-year-old woman whose late husband was one of Malcolm X's bodyguards.

Shabazz's lawyer did not immediately return a call for comment Thursday.
