Woman Charged With Plotting to Kidnap Boyfriend She Met on 'Second Life'

Delaware authorities charged a woman with plotting the real-life abduction of a boyfriend she met through the virtual reality Web site "Second Life."

Kimberly Jernigan, 33, originally of Durham, N.C., was returned to Delaware to face charges including attempted kidnapping after she was arrested in Maryland last week.

Court records show that Jernigan drove to the 52-year-old man's apartment Thursday with a stun gun, handcuffs and duct tape.

She fled after he came home to find her there and called police.

Police said the two met online on "Second Life," a social site where people create virtual alter egos.

The man broke off the relationship after they met in person.

Court records do not list an attorney for Jernigan, who was being held in lieu of $65,000 bail by New Castle County Police in Delaware
