MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - The woman accused of squatting in a Memphis mansion is back behind bars after appearing in court again Tuesday.

Extra security was on hand at Tabitha Gentry's hearing. At least eight sheriff's deputies were in the courtroom as a result of her last court appearance.

Gentry repeatedly interrupted the judge during her first court appearance, in which she appeared via video.

During that arraignment, the judge upheld her bond at $2 million despite her outbursts and opposition.

Gentry was arrested after making her home in an East Memphis mansion worth $3 million that had gone into foreclosure.

In court Tuesday, Gentry says she plans to represent herself and the judge allowed it. She will be required to sign a waiver.

The self-proclaimed Moorish-American is expected to be back in court April 10.
