FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida woman accused by authorities of illegally injecting toxic substances such as flat-tire sealant and glue into women's buttocks as an enhancement procedure is facing new charges.

Broward Sheriff's Office deputies say 32-year-old Oneal Ron Morris faces unlicensed practice of medicine and related charges after three new victims were identified. Morris, who police say was born a man and identifies as a woman, was arrested in November on similar charges in Miami-Dade County.

The victims told authorities that Morris wore a nurse's uniform, gloves and an ID tag during the procedures. Authorities said Morris also injected victims with caulk and cement. All three victims suffered medical complications and infections.

Morris is free on $8,500 bail after turning herself in Monday. Her attorney said his client maintains her innocence.
