BRISTOL COUNTY, Massachusetts — The involuntary manslaughter case against Michelle Carter, the Massachusetts woman accused of urging her boyfriend to kill himself, is now in the hands of a Bristol County juvenile court judge.

Judge Lawrence Moniz said he will alert the clerk’s office when he’s done reviewing all testimony and exhibits, and his verdict will be announced the next day.

Conrad Roy III was 18 when he poisoned himself in 2014 by inhaling carbon monoxide in his pickup truck.
