A Massachusetts woman was sentenced to 2-1/2 years in prison on Thursday for goading her teenage boyfriend into suicide with a series of text messages in 2014.

Michelle Carter, 20, of Plainville was found guilty in June of involuntary manslaughter for urging her 18-year-old boyfriend, Conrad Roy, to kill himself in a parking lot in Fairhaven, Massachusetts, about 60 miles (100 km) south of Boston.

Prosecutors had asked the judge to sentence Carter to seven to 12 years in prison, while defense attorneys sought a sentence of five years' probation. State law allowed up to 20 years.
