    A heartless killer or brainwashed by love? Honor student 'who sent 1,000 texts urging boyfriend to kill himself' claims dead boy lured HER into 'Romeo and Juliet suicide plot'
    • Michelle Carter accused of involuntary manslaughter in July 2014 suicide
    • She 'encouraged her friend Conrad Roy III to kill himself inside his truck'
    • When he grew scared, she reportedly told him to 'get back in' the vehicle
    • Roy, 18, took her advice and passed away of carbon monoxide poisoning
    • Her lawyers claim the text messages violated no laws
    • They claim Carter was brainwashed into helping Roy and that he wanted the pair to die together like Romeo and Juliet
    • Massachusetts does not have a statute that criminalizes assisted suicide

    Lawyers for a Massachusetts honor student accused of urging her friend to kill himself say the boy was trying to get her to participate in a Romeo and Juliet-style death pact when she was 'brainwashed' into helping him commit suicide.

    Michelle Carter, 18, is charged with involuntary manslaughter for allegedly encouraging the death of Conrad Roy III - who gassed himself in his truck in the carpark of a K-Mart in Fairhaven in July 2014 - through hundreds of text messages.

    Carter appeared in court on Monday looking defiant as her lawyers attempted to have the charges against her dismissed, maintaining Carter tried to help Roy seek help, urging him to attend a mental health facility where she was undergoing treatment.

    However prosecutors maintain she sent messages to him which said 'you just have to do it', 'tonight is the night', and 'it's painless and quick.'

    'You just gotta do it, babe': As the prosecution revealed text messages between Michelle Carter (pictured Monday) and victim Conrad Roy III in court, her lawyers claimed she was 'brainwashed' into the assisting the suicide in July 2014

    On trial: Michelle Carter, 18, allegedly urged her friend Conrad Roy, who she met online, to commit suicide via text message the week before he died

    The grandmother of Conrad Roy III weeps as she listens to defense attorney Joseph P. Cataldo arguing for the involuntary manslaughter charge against Michelle Carter to be dismissed on Monday

    Carter was seeking treatment for an undisclosed issue at McLean Hospital, a psychiatric facility in Belmont, and told Roy to come join her, Carter's lawyers contend.

    However Roy refused to seek help, defense attorney Joseph P. Cataldo said.

    According to The Standard-Times, Roy sent Carter a text 11 days before he killed himself on July 13, 2014. The text suggested the two die together 'like Romeo and Juliet,' the lawyer said.

    The lawyer also claims Carter replied saying: '(Expletive), no we are not dying.'

    But the prosecution says that Carter counselled Roy over many months 'to overcome his doubts, devising a plan to run a combustion engine within his truck in order to poison him with carbon monoxide, and by directing him to go back in his truck after he exited it, when he became frightened that the plan was working', according to the indictment against her.

    On Friday they released a series of disturbing text messages that Carter and Roy allegedly exchanged, in which she repeatedly asked him: 'When are you going to do it?'

    You have to just do it ... There is no way you can fail. Tonight is the night. It's now or never.

    According to the newspaper, one exchange between the two was:

    Carter: I think your parents know you're in a really bad place. I'm not saying they want you to do it but I honestly feel like they can accept it.

    They know there is nothing they can do. They've tried helping. Everyone's tried, but there is a point that comes where there isn't anything anyone can do to save you, not even yourself.

    And you've hit that point and I think your parents know you've hit that point. You said your mom saw a suicide thing on your computer and she didn't say anything. I think she knows it's on your mind and she's prepared for it.

    Everyone will be sad for a while but they will get over it and move on. They won't be in depression. I won't let that happen. They know how sad you are, and they know that you are doing this to be happy and I think they will understand and accept it.

    They will always carry you in their hearts.

    Roy: Aww. Thank you, Michelle.

    Carter: They will move on for you because they know that's what you would have wanted. They know you wouldn't want them to be sad and depressed and be angry and guilty. They know you want them to live their lives and be happy. So they will for you. You're right. You need to stop thinking about this and just do it because over turning always kills, over thinking.

    Roy:Yeah, it does. I've been thinking about it for too long.

    Carter: Always smile, and, yeah, you have to just do it. You have everything you need. There is no way you can fail. Tonight is the night. It's now or never.

    'Encouragement': In the hours leading up to Roy's death, Carter (left) had reportedly sent the boy (right) text messages urging him to follow through with his suicide attempt and ordering him to 'get back in' his truck

    The Standard-Times also reported another exchange between the two on the day that Roy died.

    In the texts, Carter allegedly urges Roy to delete all the messages she had sent him before he commits suicide.

    Roy: I dont know. I'm stressing.Boston Herald reports.

    He told the court that the indictment is 'unconstitutionally void for vagueness under the due process provisions of the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution'.

    And he highlighted that Carter - who was 17 at the time of Roy's death - was charged as a youthful offender, which means her case is open and she could face punishment as an adult if convicted.

    This could entail a prison term of 20 years.

    Massachusetts does not have a statute that criminalizes assisted suicide - unlike 40 other states - meaning the case against Carter will be an 'uphill battle' for the prosecution, experts told CBS.

    But prosecutors present a much different case against Carter, a honor student at King Philip Regional High School.

    They say the night before Roy died, Carter allegedly texted a friend saying: 'I'm losing all hope that he's even alive.' But at the same time, she reportedly messaged Roy: 'Let me know when you're gonna do it.'

    Carter, who exchanged more than 1,000 text messages with Roy leading up to his death, then apparently urged her friend, whom she had first met on vacation, to follow through with his plans.

    'When he actually started to carry out the act, he got scared again and exited his truck, but instead of telling him to stay out of the truck... Carter told him to "get back in",' a police report states.

    Accused: Michelle Carter (pictured in court in April) was charged with involuntary manslaughter after her friend, Conrad Roy III died of carbon monoxide poisoning in the parking lot of a Kmart in Massachusetts

    Roy subsequently did so and used carbon monoxide fumes to take his own life on July 13 last year.

    He was aged only 18.

    His body was found in his pickup truck after his parents reported him missing, the Herald reports.

    Police later discovered the text messages between Roy and Carter on Roy's cell phone.

    Were any of her texts sent while she was driving?
    That would concern me as a concerned citizen and parent.

    She's guilty and a horrible cunt of a girl. I hope she goes to prison for awhile, but she won't. That horrible fat cunt mother who created the facebook page which urged the other teen girl to kill herself awhile ago got away with it too, eventually.

    Maybe not criminal but it should be. She deserves to be punished severely. He got out of the truck and she talked him into going back. Yes, he was a dummy for listening to her, but with 1000 texts, maybe he was kinda brainwashed into it. Or easily influenced. She seems to be completely evil and uncaring. Not an adult I'd like to see out free.

    What a sick fuck.

    She may not have broken formal "laws", but she's completely blown out any argument that she's a human being with a beating heart.

    Throw her in with some seasoned prison bitches... good luck, honey
