Woman who encouraged boyfriend to kill himself could avoid prison


A woman who encouraged her boyfriend to kill himself with dozens of texts messages, including one that told him to "get back in" a truck filled with toxic gas, could avoid a jail sentence.

Michelle Carter was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in June after a judge ruled that
her final instruction to Conrad Roy III caused his death from carbon monoxide poisoning in July 2014.

Bristol County Juvenile Court in Massachusetts heard that Carter, then 17, had repeatedly messaged the 18-year-old Roy, before he took his own life.
