A woman convicted in connection to a suicide will go before the Supreme Judicial Court in Massachusetts this week.
Michelle Carter was sentenced to 15 months for involuntary manslaughter.
She is accused of sending texts to her suicidal boyfriend telling him to get back into his truck that was filling with carbon monoxide.
Carter's attorneys say this case would set the precedent for someone who encouraged suicide with words alone.
No word on when the High Court would issue a ruling.
