A 19-year-old Alabama woman was arrested after asking a Facebook friend, who was actually her aunt in disguise, to shoot and kill her family.

According to a report  by AL.com, a woman in Fosters, Alabama, created a Facebook account posing as a man in order to be able to talk to her niece who had blocked her on the social media site.

The niece, 19-year-old Marissa Williams, has lived with her aunt since April and allegedly would invite strangers she befriended over social media over to her house. After Williams' aunt asked her to refrain, the 19-year-old blocked her aunt on Facebook.

In order to keep tabs on her niece, the aunt decided to create a Facebook account and posed as a man named Tre 'Topdog' Ellis and began contacting her niece. As the report notes, court documents say that Williams gave the fictional man her phone number and address on upon their first day of interacting and offered him sex if he'd pay her $50 cellphone bill.

The report goes on:

She then asked the man she'd never met to come kidnap her and take her away from her family. According to the deposition, Williams told 'Tre' to shoot and kill her aunt if she tried to stop him.

Her plans reportedly got increasingly intricate and sinister as time passed.

According to the report, Williams' plan included shooting her cousin, the family dog, and her aunt's fiance.

AL.com reports that, according to the deposition, Williams admitted to the plot but apologized and didn't want anyone to be killed. Williams was jailed at the Tuscaloosa County sheriff's office, where she is charged with the solicitation of murder and issued a $30,000 bond.
