A daughter of Malcolm X is being held without bail after violating terms of her probation, authorities say.     

Malikah Shabazz is due back before a New York City judge on Jan. 6, reports The New York Post.     

Shabazz was sentenced to five years of probation in July for stealing the identity of an elderly family friend to run up big credit card bills.     

She pleaded guilty and was freed from jail in June. She was ordered to pay back the full amount stolen as part of the deal.     

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.
