BOSTON (WJW) -- A former Boston College student has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in a case accusing her of encouraging her boyfriend to take his life.
Inyoung You, 21, appeared in court Friday morning.
Prosecutors say she sent Alexander Urtula, of Cedar Grove, New Jersey, more than 47,000 text messages in the last two months of the relationship. They say many urged him to “go kill yourself.”
Urtula died in Boston on May 20, the day of his Boston College graduation.
Earlier this week You, through a public relations firm, released text messages suggesting she tried to stop Urtula and alerted Urtula’s brother in the moments before his death.
