Marissa Williams, 19, was arrested and charged with solicitation of murder after asking a fictional man she met on Facebook to kill her family, reports AL.com.
Williams did not know that the man, whom she thought was named Tre ‘Topdog’ Ellis, was actually her aunt monitoring her irresponsible Facebook activity.
Concerned by her niece’s reckless behavior, and unable to see her page after being blocked, the aunt created “Topdog” and sent her niece a friend request.
It did not take long for the Facebook exchanges to turn to discussions of prostitution and murder.

According to court documents, Williams began unknowingly talking to her aunt, posing as Ellis, in late May, and on the first day they interacted online, she gave the fictional boy her phone number and home address and asked him to come over and get drunk with her. She then offered to have sex with him if he’d pay her $50 cell phone bill.
Days later, Williams allegedly told the man she knew as Ellis that her family made her angry and that she wanted to get out of Alabama. 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.
