Lawyers for a Massachusetts teenage girl charged with involuntary manslaughter for sending her boyfriend text messages encouraging him to take his own life have asked a judge to suppress statements she made to police.
The Boston Globe reports that the motion to suppress was among almost two dozen motions filed by lawyers for 19-year-old Michelle Carter at Friday's court appearance.
The judge did rule on the motions but said her trial could start in December.
Michelle Carter of Plainville sent Conrad Roy III, of Mattapoisett, dozens of text messages telling him to "get back in" a truck filled with carbon monoxide fumes.
In July of 2014, Fairhaven Police found Roy's body in his car parked behind a store. They believe he committed suicide by means of carbon monoxide poisoning.
The Supreme Judicial Court ruled earlier this month that a grand jury had probable cause to indict Carter.
Carter's lawyer said she had repeatedly tried to talk Roy out of taking his own life, but gave up about two weeks before his death. He argued that Roy - who had made a previous suicide attempt - was determined to end his life.
