She later claimed that she listened on her cellphone as he died. Adding to that, Cataldo also said, Carter was the only support to Roy.

In early July, suicide again came up as well as Carter's doubt about whether he would do it, according to text messages extracted from Roy's phone by Bates. "You need to just do it".

At 6:28 p.m., on the night of his suicide, Roy called Carter and spoke with her for about 43 minutes, the trooper testified.

If you or someone you know is showing warning signs of suicide, consider contacting the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK, texting the Crisis Text Line at 741741 or seeking help from a professional. Kill yourself, ' "a prosecutor said". In court on Friday, her attorneys requested that Bristol Juvenile Court Judge Lawrence Moniz dismiss the criminal charges of involuntary manslaughter, but he ultimately refused to do so.

In an argument to drop the case, the defense pointed to a selfie video of Roy appearing to be in a downward spiral.

Roy's body was found July 13, 2014, in a Kmart parking lot in Fairhaven, almost 40 miles from his home.

On July 14, according to testimony, Carter texted a classmate, "I do blame myself, it's my fault". Roy: I still haven't left yet, ha ha Carter: Why? I thought you really wanted to die, but apparently you don't. Roy: Leaving now. Carter: Okay.

Carter: "You're not gonna kill yourself". Carter asked on July 3.

Carter, now 20, was 17 when the 18-year-old Roy died. "Like I know you say you're gonna but are you seriously gonna try?"

Carter continued to press the teenager, asking how he planned to take his life.

Another message to her friend, Alexandra Eitheir, stated: "I was on the phone talking to him when he killed himself".

Another said, "You're so hesitant because you keep over thinking it and keep pushing it off". Roy committed suicide by poisoning himself with carbon monoxide from a portable generator he attached to the truck.

Carter's trial began Tuesday with prosecutor Maryclare Flynn saying that Carter "used Conrad as a pawn in a sick game of life and death for attention".

The prosecution said Ms Carter urged Mr Roy to kill himself in order to get attention as "the grieving girlfriend". Some text messages show Carter suggested Roy seek professional help, he said.

A doctor charged with killing a Yale University physician over a workplace dispute has pleaded no contest to lesser charges and agreed to serve 32 years in prison. She struggled with an eating disorder, self-inflicted pain, and suicidal thoughts, she wrote to her peers in text messages. Carter eventually became annoyed that Roy hadn't followed through. "This was not an accident, it was purposeful, she told him to do it".

In one text to a friend, Ms Carter wrote: "Sam, [the victim's] death is my fault like honestly I could have stopped him I was on the phone with him and he got out of the [truck] because it was working and he got scared and I f****** told him to get back in Sam because I knew he would do it all over again the next day and I couldnt have him live the way he was living anymore I couldnt do it I wouldnt let him".
