Michelle Carter, convicted in texting suicide case, released from jail

A Massachusetts woman who encouraged her boyfriend to kill himself was released from jail Thursday, after just under a year behind bars.

Michelle Carter walked out of Bristol County Jail flanked by jail officials, one of whom was holding two clear garbage bags containing her belongings. Carter was dressed in a black turtleneck, light-colored blazer and black pants. She was picked up by her parents and lawyer, who had no comment.

The 23-year-old was convicted in 2017 of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Conrad Roy III, who died by suicide in 2014 after filling the inside of his pickup truck with poisonous fumes.
