JACKSON, MS (WLOX) -

A former Mississippi State University student pleaded guilty Tuesday to conspiring to provide material support a terrorist organization.

Jaelyn Delshaun Young, 20, admitted to planning with her fiancé, Muhammed Oda Dakhlalla, to travel to Syria to join ISIS.

Dakhlalla pleaded guilty to a similar charge on March 13. Young faces up to 20 years in prison and $250,000 in fines.

According to court documents, Young and Dakhlalla interacted with undercover FBI agents online and talked about how they wanted to travel to Syria to join ISIS.

The couple was arrested just before boarding an airplane in Columbus, MS, on Aug. 8, 2015. According to authorities, their tickets indicated they were traveling to Istanbul.

Young will remain in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service while she awaits sentencing.
