Supreme Court Declines to hear Texting Case
The Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear the case of a Massachusetts woman who sent her boyfriend text messages urging him to kill himself. Carter is serving a 15-month sentence after being convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the 2014 death of her boyfriend, Conrad Roy III, but she's expected to be released this month. The Judge in the case determined that Carter, 17 caused the death of her 18 year boyfriend when she ordered him in a phone call to get back into his carbon monoxide filled vehicle. Carter had sent a text to a friend describing the incident. In text messages in days prior to his death, Carter had encouraged Roy to carry out his suicide plan.
