Judge finds US girl guilty for urging boyfriend to suicide

A Massachusetts judge found a young woman guilty of manslaughter on Friday for a series of text messages to her boyfriend urging him to commit suicide in 2014.

Michelle Carter, now 20, cried and shook as Bristol County Juvenile Court Judge Lawrence Moniz found her guilty of involuntary manslaughter for the series of texts and phone calls urging her 18-year-old boyfriend, Conrad Roy, to kill himself.

The trial heard that Carter and Roy exchanged hundreds of text messages in which Carter, 17 at the time, urged him to follow through on his plan to kill himself, to conceal it from his parents, lie to his mother and select a secluded parking lot.
