A daughter of slain civil rights leader Malcolm X has been extradited to New York City to face charges of identity theft and grand larceny.

Malikah Shabazz was held on $100,000 bail after a court appearance Wednesday night in Queens.

Shabazz waived extradition from North Carolina, where she was arrested last week on a warrant issued more than a year ago.

She is accused of defrauding the widow of one of her father’s former bodyguards out of more than $55,000 in credit card bills.

The 45-year-old Shabazz was arrested Feb. 18 after investigators went to her home in western North Carolina on an unrelated matter. That’s when authorities found out about the warrant.

Her lawyer says his client denies the charges. Her case has been adjourned to March 15.
