The case of the Plainville teenager who is accused of urging her friend to commit suicide is set to be heard.

The case for Michelle Carter, 18, will be heard in Taunton juvenile court. 

Carter is charged with involuntary manslaughter.

Prosecutors say Carter helped her friend, Conrad Roy, come up with a plan to kill himself in 2014 and then sent him text messages hassling him when he procrastinated.
