Carter broke down in tears at the Bristol Juvenile Court as the judge announced she'd caused the death of her then-boyfriend.
Using hundreds of text messages shared between the young couple, prosecutors proved that Carter directly contributed to Roy's death.
Flynn told the court that after Carter told Roy to return to his auto, she then listened to him "as he cried out in pain and died" and did not contact his police or family for help. In the days leading up to his death, Carter repeatedly encouraged Roy to kill himself through texts and phone calls. "I thought you really wanted to die but apparently you don't".
Carter faces up to 20 years in prison when sentenced August 3.
"All you have to do is turn the generator on and you will be free and happy". The case was then given to Juvenile Court Judge Lawrence Moniz for a decision. As jury selection was set to begin, Carter waived her right to a trial by jury, according to CBS Boston.
That remarkable ruling will likely be tested before a court of appeals, which will decide whether Carter actually caused Roy to die on July 12, 2014. "You said you were gonna do it".
"She admits in subsequent texts that she did nothing, she did not call the police or Mr. Roy's family", Judge Moniz said.

But he lamented the lack of three points after the match . "It's not to come here and see what happens and enjoy the three games".
The mother of an 18-year-old student who committed suicide after prodding from his girlfriend said the woman who urged him to take his life doesn't "have a conscience". In order to arrive at an involuntary manslaughter charge, the prosecution essentially needed to prove that Carter's words killed Roy.
"I don't think there is sufficient proof of causation", Bailey said yesterday.
Carter cried when Moniz read the verdict and others in the courtroom sobbed.
In addition to her encouragement, Carter also knew the location of Roy and his truck, and failed to alert any authorities, or Roy's family members.
Although she can not leave the state of MA, apply for a passport or contact members of the Roy family. Roy's relatives, who sat near her in the first row, wept as Moniz ticked through the steps Roy took to end his life, as well as Carter's complicity.
"There is no law in MA making it a crime to encourage someone, or even to persuade someone, to commit suicide", Segal added.
