CLAYMONT, Del. (AP) -- A woman is charged in Delaware with plotting the real-life abduction of a boyfriend she met through the virtual reality Web site "Second Life."
Thirty-three-year-old Kimberly Jernigan from Durham, N.C., was returned to Delaware to face charges including attempted kidnapping after she was arrested in Maryland last week.
Court records say Jernigan drove to the 52-year-old man's apartment Thursday with a stun gun, handcuffs and duct tape. She fled when he came home, discovered her and called 911.
Police said the two met online on Second Life, a social site where people create alter egos. The man broke off the relationship after they met in person.
Court records did not list an attorney for Jernigan, who was being held in lieu of $65,000 bail.
