Woman arrested, charged with soliciting fictional man to kill her family members

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) – A 19-year-old is charged with solicitation of murder after asking a fictional person she met on Facebook to kill her family, according to court documents.

Marissa Williams, 19, lived with her aunt since April 2014. A court deposition says Williams and her aunt encountered some relationship issues when her aunt told Williams to stop inviting random men over to the house “because of the dangers of such actions.”

When Williams’ aunt forbid her from attending numerous parties with different guys she met on Facebook, Williams blocked her from seeing her page.

In an attempt to find out how Williams acts when she talks to guys on Facebook, Williams’ aunt says she created a Facebook account under the name of “Tre Topdog Ellis” and befriended Marissa. Williams’ aunt also said she considered using it as a way to show her niece how to better interact with people online.

During their communication, which began on May 24, Williams asked Ellis to come over and get drunk with her and said she would have sex with him if he agreed to pay her $50 cell phone bill. Williams gave him the address to her great grandmother’s house so he cold pick her up on May 25. Just a day later, the two sent many text messages, and Williams said she still wanted Ellis to come pick her up.

She said she was tired of being stuck inside the house and asked Ellis to kidnap her and take her away from Alabama.

Williams told Ellis to pick her up at her aunt’s house, and if any family members mentioned calling the police, he was told to shoot them. Williams tried to have her aunt, her son and her fiancé killed by Ellis.

He was also informed to shoot her cousin and their dog as he left.

Deputies with the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office spoke with Williams later that day; she was apologetic for the messages she sent. She claimed she didn’t mean it. Authorities arrested WIlliams and placed her in the Tuscaloosa County Jail, where she remains pending a $30,000 bond.
