Michelle Carter, the Massachusetts woman convicted of involuntary manslaughter for persuading her boyfriend to kill himself, was released from prison Thursday, months ahead of schedule due to good behavior.
Carter, now 23, began serving a 15-month sentence in February, but she earned time off her sentence for good behavior, according to Jonathan Darling, spokesman at the Bristol County Sheriff's Office.
She left the Bristol County House of Correction at about 9:30 a.m., video from CNN affiliate WHDH shows. Wearing a black turtleneck, a light blazer and black pants -- the same outfit she wore the day she was sentenced -- Carter walked off prison grounds surrounded by guards and got into a waiting SUV.
Carter's release ends a saga that began when Conrad Roy III, 18, killed himself in July 2014. Investigators discovered scores of text messages from Carter in which she, according to prosecutors, berated Roy and encouraged him to go through with the suicide, even after he expressed hesitation.
"I thought you wanted to do this. The time is right and you're ready, you just need to do it! You can't keep living this way," she wrote in one exchange.
Carter listened over the phone as Conrad Roy suffocated from carbon monoxide inhalation in his pickup truck, and they said she did not tell his parents or authorities when he died. Her defense attorneys said that Carter was a troubled and delusional young woman and that Roy had long been intent on killing himself.

I’m not sure about jail, but I am interested in which quadrant of the “hot/crazy matrix” graph she should be placed.
I agree. However, in some parts of the country, It’s hard to find a “good Christian person” that can or will help. I moved from Seattle to the bible belt.The difference is shocking.
The thing he most needed help with was someone getting her out of his life. His brain was still developing. Of course, so was hers, which is part of the problem.
FWIW, my wife says that as bad as most people think men are compared to women, women are much worse. They just hide it better. Men are overt about it. Anybody that’s ever watched those old daytime soap operas has seen it in the scripts.
She was a kid, and probably ticked at him for something and was essentially lashing out in anger.
There’s a pic of her in the article a ways down. Slim, short blonde hair. Or at least I thought it was her and not some advertisement.
I’m behind a firewall. I only get to see about half the images that are posted. :(
Then again sociopathy seems nearly epidemic out there.
