TUSCALOOSA, Ala Authorities in central Alabama have arrested a 19-year-old woman they say tried to have someone she met on Facebook kill her family.

But the person she was talking to over the social media site was actually her aunt.

Al.com reports that Marissa Williams was arrested Monday and charged with solicitation of murder. She was being held in the Tuscaloosa County jail on $30,000 bond. It wasn't immediately clear if she had a lawyer.

After being blocked from seeing her niece's Facebook profile, Williams' aunt told investigators she created a new Facebook profile for a fake man. Williams began chatting with the fictional man, not knowing it was her aunt.

The aunt contacted authorities after Williams talked about how the man could into the home and kill family members.
