Broward Circuit Judge John Hurley ordered Oneal Morris, 32, to surrender her passport and wear a GPS monitor, and said she won't be allowed to leave the tri-county area if she posts bond. Defense attorney Michael Mirer and Valentina Lopez of Hallandale Beach, who said she was one of Morris' victims, spoke about the case.
Morris, who police said was born a man and identifies as a woman, was arrested in late July on charges of practicing medicine without a license and manslaughter in the death of Shatarka Nuby, 32. She died in March in Tallahassee from what an assistant medical examiner called "massive systemic silicone migration" as a result of the cosmetic silicone injections, according to authorities.
Morris has been arrested multiple times for performing cosmetic procedures without a license in Broward and Miami-Dade counties, but Nuby is the only person who has died from her treatments, authorities said.
“Morris maintains she had nothing to do with the death of (Nuby), and we intend on proving her innocence in reference to that particular case in court,” Mirer said.
He said he expected Morris to be released from jail in the next day or two.
The state still has not filed formal charges against Morris in the case, Mirer said.
