US woman to serve 15 months in jail over boyfriend's suicideA Massachusetts judge on Thursday sentenced a 20-year-old woman to two and a half years, of which 15 months would be served behind bars, for encouraging her teenage boyfriend to make good on plans to kill himself. Judge Lawrence Moniz told Michelle Carter in the Bristol County House of Corrections that after the 15 months, the balance of her sentence would be suspended until August 1, 2022 on probation. Moniz said it had been important to balance punishment and rehabilitation for her role in the death of Conrad Roy, 18, who died from carbon monoxide poisoning in his pickup truck in July 2014.
