She ‘Has a Damaged Moral Core’: Conrad Roy’s Aunt Says Michelle Carter Had Asked for His Ashes at His Wake

Michelle Carter ‘s relationship with boyfriend Conrad Roy III, the late Massachusetts teen who died in July 2014 of carbon monoxide poisoning after locking himself in his truck, was one his family knew very little about — even as Carter showed up after Roy’s death asking to take home part of his ashes.

Carter was found guilty in June of involuntary manslaughter for urging Roy, 18, through texts and phone conversations to commit suicide despite the young man — who battled depression — telling her he wanted to abandon his plan.

The 20-year-old, who was 17 at the time of the texts, was charged as a youthful offender — which under state law allowed her to be sentenced the same as an adult although she was a minor at the time of the crime. She faced up to 20 years in prison,

Michelle Carter, whose texts pushed her boyfriend to suicide, sentenced to 15 months

Michelle Carter, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for urging her boyfriend through calls and text messages to commit suicide, was sentenced Thursday to 15 months behind bars, but will not serve time during her appeal.

A Massachusetts judge ruled Carter was responsible for Conrad Roy III’s death because she had placed him in a situation that led to his suicide in a landmark case that made national headlines.

Bristol County Juvenile Court Judge Lawrence Moniz sentenced Carter to 2½ years in the Bristol County House of Correction, with 15 months suspended.

However, the judge granted Carter a stay of incarceration, meaning Carter will not serve time behind bars until she has exhausted her appeals in state court.

Moniz said in court Thursday afternoon that although he does not believe Carter’s age, maturity level or mental health issues had a significant impact on her actions in 2014, her youth gives her a better chance at rehabilitation.

Carter’s attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment in the case.

True-Crime Anthology Series From Nick Antosca & Michelle Dean In Works At Hulu

Hulu has put in development The Act, a character-based true-crime anthology series from writers Nick Antosca (Channel Zero) and Michelle Dean.

Each season of the anthology series will center on one particular case, with the first installment based on Dean’s 2016 Buzzfeed article “Dee Dee Wanted Her Daughter To Be Sick, Gypsy Wanted Her Mom To Be Murdered.” It is the true story of single mom Dee Dee Blanchard who convinced everyone around her that her daughter, Gypsy, was sick with multiple serious illnesses even though Gypsy was perfectly healthy. When Dee Dee was found murdered from multiple stab wounds, her neighbors and extended family were stunned to learn that Gypsy was responsible, having convinced her boyfriend to kill her mom.

Michelle Carter ‘Very Disappointed’ After Conviction in Boyfriend’s Suicide: Attorney

The lawyer for Michelle Carter says his client is “very disappointed” in a Massachusetts judge’s verdict last Friday convicting her of involuntary manslaughter in the 2014 suicide of her boyfriend.

“The case presented some very novel legal issues, and we’re very disappointed in the outcome of the verdict,” attorney Joseph Cataldo tells PEOPLE.

Cataldo adds that he and Carter, 20, “will be weighing our various options moving forward” and are focused on Carter’s sentencing on Aug. 3.

He said he is not sure whether Carter will appeal her conviction.

Carter faces up to 20 years in prison. Addressing her potential sentencing, Cataldo says, “There’s a whole host of different options ranging from jail to probation.”

Carter was accused of urging the suicide of her boyfriend, Conrad Roy III, over texts and phone calls. On July 13, 2014, authorities found Roy’s body in his pickup
