ATLANTA (AP) — A woman in charge of caring for Bobbi Kristina Brown at the hospice where she died was impersonating a nurse and faces charges, police said, the latest offshoot following the death of the only daughter of singers Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston.

The 22-year-old Brown died July 26, six months after she was found face-down and unresponsive in the bathtub of her townhome in January. In that span, police have investigated, lawyers have traded accusations about what caused her death and tabloids have covered every development.

There's no indication in a police report obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday that Brown's care was affected by Taiwo Sobamowo, the nurse in charge of caring for the 22-year-old at Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth.

Police said Sobamowo, 32, was impersonating a licensed nurse with a similar name and faces charges that include identity fraud and nursing without a license.
