Image of Michelle Carter, who is charged with involuntary manslaughter, from the Reuters video.Prosecutors say the text messages and phone calls made before and during the suicide prove that Carter persuaded Roy to kill himself.

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

Michelle Carter admitted to a friend that she told Conrad Roy to get back in his vehicle during a suicide attempt in 2014, according to a text message revealed in court Wednesday.

"She has to be the grieving girlfriend to get the sympathy and the attention that she believes she deserves", Flynn said.

Cataldo noted the young's man extensive online searches about suicide methods, Carter's attempts to get him to seek help and her own bouts with mental issues.

They say she asked Roy to erase her text messages before he passed, but the messages on Roy's phone showed that the two texted right up until the moment of Roy's death.

Another gripping text comes from the day Roy died.

A legal expert told Buzzfeed News that the shocking details of Roy's suicide may lead to a guilty conviction if the ruling was based on emotions, but there was a higher chance that Carter would not be found guilty because there was a strong case of reasonable doubt.

Mr Roy's mother Lynn told the juvenile court in Taunton, Massachusetts, that she had been walking on the beach with her son hours before he was found dead and he had not showed any sign of wanting to hurt himself.

Carter was admitted to a hospital with her own mental health struggles for a period prior to Roy's suicide and was taking anti-depressant medications known to cloud the judgment and impulse control of adolescents, Cataldo said.

Kevin Durant's menacing defence leads the way for Warriors
He looks more like a two-time MVP than the hobbled player he was in last year's Finals. "A lot of people said we couldn't". The Warriors ran away with Game 2 despite seeing their turnovers jump from just four in Game 1 to 20 on Sunday night.

When Roy said he wanted to go back to sleep, Carter suggested that "now" is the best time to do it because everyone was still sleeping.

Conrad Roy's then-13-year-old sister testified that she received a text on the day of his death from Carter that read, "Find him yet?"

The defense team argues that Roy's death was a "tragic suicide", not a homicide.

Michelle Carter, who was 17 at the time, goes on trial this week in a Taunton, Massachusetts, courtroom on involuntary manslaughter charges. She waived her right to a jury trial, meaning her case will be decided by Judge Moniz, who will render a verdict after testimony is over.

Carter's attorney, Joseph P. Cataldo, doesn't dispute that his client texted Roy - but he has said the messages were not criminal and certainly do not rise to the level of manslaughter.

Now, almost three years later, Carter is on trial in a controversial case that experts say raises new and contentious questions: Can a person be charged and convicted in someone's death even if she was not with the victim when he died? "All you have to do is turn the generator on and you will be free and happy", she reportedly wrote.

The police investigation after Roy's suicide concluded that Carter had "strongly influenced" his decision to take his own life using carbon monoxide. Her brother did not seem sad at the beach, she testified.

The prosecutor said Carter posted about her boyfriend's death on Facebook and "the floodgates for her opened". She faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
