CUMMING, Ga. (AP) — The latest on the woman accused of posing as a nurse at the hospice where Bobbi Kristina Brown died (all times local):

11:45 a.m.

A woman accused of posing as a nurse at the hospice where Bobbi Kristina Brown died has made her first court appearance in Georgia.

Taiwo Sobamowo (soh-BAM'-ah-woh) was arrested Sunday in Raleigh, North Carolina, but was transferred back to Georgia. She appeared Thursday in Forsyth County Magistrate Court, shown by video conference from the county jail.

Chief Magistrate Judge Walker Bramblett set a $2,240 bond for felony charges of financial identity fraud and forgery and a $25,000 bond for practicing nursing without a license. Taiwo Sobawomo only spoke to tell the judge how to pronounce her last name.

The judge said Gwinnett County has issued a hold order for Sobawomo.

It's not clear if she has an attorney.
