A Massachusetts woman was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter for sending her boyfriend dozens of text messages urging him to kill himself.

In 2014, Conrad Roy III was found dead of carbon monoxide poisoning. Investigators later discovered a barrage of text messages from the then 17-year-old Michelle Carter encouraging him to take his own life.

Carter’s lawyers argued that Roy had a history of depression and suicide attempts and was determined to end his own life. He said Carter initially tried to talk him out of his plan and urged him to get professional help.
