Michelle Carter, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in her boyfriend's texting suicide, has completed her parole, a court official said.

During a court hearing, a judge determined that Carter had caused Roy's death when, in a phone call, she ordered him back into his parked truck, which he had rigged to fill it with deadly carbon monoxide.
Carter was sentenced to 15 months in prison in February 2019. She was released from the Bristol County Jail in January 2020 after having more than three months cut from her sentence for good behavior.
