Former Boston College student charged with involuntary manslaughter for alleged role in boyfriend’s suicide

first_imgSuffolk County District Attorneys Office(BOSTON) — A former Boston College student has been charged with involuntary manslaughter for her alleged role in the suicide of her boyfriend, according to Massachusetts prosecutors.South Korea resident Inyoung You, 21, was allegedly present when her boyfriend, Alexander Urtula, jumped to his death from the roof of a parking garage in Roxbury on May 20 — the same day he was set to walk in his Boston College graduation ceremony, Suffolk County District Attorney Rachel Rollins announced Monday.An initial search of Urtula’s cellphone led to an “extensive” investigation in which prosecutors and detectives from the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority Police Department discovered that You was allegedly “physically, verbally and psychologically abusive” toward him during their 18-month “tumultuous” relationship, Rollins said.The abuse allegedly became “more frequent” and “more powerful” in the days and hours leading up to Urtula’s suicide, Rollins said.“This unrelenting abuse was witnessed by friends and classmates of both parties and documented extensively in text messages between the couple and in Mr. Urtula’s journal entries,” she said.In the two months prior to Urtula’s death, the couple exchanged more than 75,000 text messages, at least 47,000 sent by You, Rollins said. When asked by a reporter whether You “explicitly” instructed Urtula to kill himself, Rollins replied, “I would comfortably say, yes, thousands of times.”“In the 47,000 text messages, yes, there were many, many instances where she instructed him to do so,” she said.The messages also allegedly included that he should “go die” and that she, his family and the world “would be better off without him,” Rollins said. You also allegedly used “manipulative threats of self-harm” to control Urtula and isolate him from friends and family.Urtula’s family was in town from New Jersey to watch him graduate and ultimately learned of his plans to die by suicide through a series of correspondence via text, Rollins said.You was able to find Urtula at the parking garage through the tracking app on her phone, Rollins said, adding that she was allegedly “aware of his spiraling depression and suicidal thoughts brought on by her abuse.”“Even still, she continued to encourage Mr. Urtula to take his own life,” she said.The indictment against You accuses her of “wanton and reckless” behavior in “overwhelming” Urtula’s will to live. She is currently in South Korea, and prosecutors are hoping that she will voluntarily return after speaking with someone who is representing her.If You does not return, they will attempt to extradite her from the country, Rollins said.“Students come to Boston from around the world to attend our renowned colleges and universities,” Rollins said. “They are eager to learn and experience our vibrant city. Their families and loved ones do not expect them to face unending physical and mental abuse.”A representative for Boston College did not immediately return ABC News’ request for comment.Rollins mentioned “Conrad’s Law,” a bill that is currently before a state judiciary committee that would make suicidal coercion a crime punishable up to five years, as well as the similarities the case has to the conviction of Michelle Carter, who as a teenager sent texts urging her then-boyfriend to kill himself.However, Rollins characterized the case against You as ‘separate and distinct.”More details of the case will be released during a future arraignment, Rollins said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

first_imgQUICKEST OVERTIME IN NFL HISTORY—Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas (88) breaks away from Steelers defensive back Ryan Mundy (29) for the winning touchdown in overtime, Jan. 8, in Denver. (AP Photo/Joe Mahoney) As it was the defense that carried the Steelers into the playoffs this season, it was the defense that knocked them out, as they could not stop one of the worst offenses in football. After a stunning 29-23 overtime loss to the Denver Broncos on a play that took only 11 seconds, the Steelers are going fishing. In what was supposed to be a low scoring game dominated by a great defensive unit against a very good one, after the first quarter it became a shoot out. After a very slow start by both teams, the Broncos jumped off to a big lead in the second quarter behind the precision passing of Tim Tebow, who was under the gun by all experts including his own coaching staff and management because he ran more than he passed. He only had 60 yards passing in his last game and had thrown more interceptions than touchdowns in his last three games. But he was brilliant in the second quarter leading his team to a 20-6 lead.After being called out by Hall of Famer John Elway, who is in charge of football operations for the Broncos, Tebow had the best game of his brief NFL career. Even though he was only 10 of 21, he had 316 yards as he picked the Steelers defense apart after being held to just 8 yards in the first quarter. It was as if the Broncos were baiting the Steelers to stack the line to stop the run so Tebow could surprise them with his throws down the field to wide open receivers. And he hit them right in stride.This not only was his breakout game, but it probably solidified his position as the Broncos quarterback of the future. He’s proven to top management and his coaching staff that if given the chance he can pass, as well as run. In fact his passing sets up his running and his running sets up his passing.Yes, the Steelers were without key players on defense with Pro Bowlers Casey Hampton and Brett Keisel suffering injuries in the first half, as well as Ryan Clark not being able to play and LaMarr Woodley missing much of the game. With the defensive line decimated the youngsters did a very good job but if they were better than the old veterans they would have been starting. With the lack of pressure, Tebow had all day to either throw the football or run it, which he did very well.The offense looked better than it has just about all season as Ben Roethlisberger led a gallant comeback, but the defense was unable to hold even after the Steelers tied the game at 23-23 during regulation.The rest is history. The Broncos got the ball first in overtime and marched down the field on the first play for the score as the defensive backs were burned once again by a long pass from Tebow to Demaryius Thomas, who had 4 catches for 204 yards for the game.Now the Steelers must take a long look at the team they have which is full of talent but must figure out what needs to be done in order for them to move to the next level. That next level is the Super Bowl. In Pittsburgh there’s nothing else.There were many bright spots in the season with the most impressive being the play of receivers Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown, who both finished with over 1,000 yards. Wallace had 1193 yards on 72 catches and Brown had 1108 yards on 69 receptions. Rashard Mendenhall, despite much criticism, finished among the league leaders in rushing with 928 yards and the defense once again finished number one overall. First against the pass, 8th against the run, and second to the 49ers in points allowed. The problem was the offense. They finished 19th in a 32 team league. Something has to be done to improve their performance in the red zone. They must be able to score touchdowns instead of field goals. And it’s not because they don’t have a power back, because neither do the Packers, Patriots or Saints, yet they have no problem scoring touchdowns once they get into the red zone.The Broncos will face the New England Patriots this weekend with the Houston Texans who defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 31-10 traveling to Baltimore to face the Ravens. The Patriots and the Ravens should be victorious. The Patriots will win the AFC championship.In the NFC the New York Giants beat the Atlanta Falcons 24-2 and the New Orleans Saints beat the Detroit Lions 45-28. This weekend the Giants will face the Green Bay Packers and the Saints will travel to San Francisco to face the 49ers. Even though the home team has won every game so far, look for this to change in the NFC. The Saints will beat the 49ers and the Giants will upset the Packers. The Saints will win the NFC championship, setting up a dream game between the Patriots and Saints.last_img read more

Greenwood (68), Gary Dunn (67) and Joe Greene (75) during first quarter of Super Bowl XIV at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. (AP Photo/File)PITTSBURGH (AP) — Four decades ago, the Pittsburgh Steelers put the finishing touches on the foundation of a dynasty.Already an emerging power in 1974, the Steelers selected wide receivers Lynn Swann and John Stallworth, linebacker Jack Lambert and center Mike Webster in the first five rounds of the 1974 draft.All four retired with a fistful of Super Bowl rings. All four have their busts in the Hall of Fame.“It is, by far, the greatest draft in NFL history,” current Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said. “Our hats are off to Art Rooney Jr., Dick Haley and Bill Nunn. Coach Chuck Noll and his staff have to be applauded, and we will certainly be thinking about that group as we get into this draft.”No pressure or anything.The Steelers aren’t quite the budding dynasty they were 40 years ago, not after consecutive 8-8 seasons. Still, after a 6-2 finish and with nine selections in what Colbert called the deepest draft he’s seen in 30 years, there is cause for optimism.Pittsburgh is stuck in the middle of the first round at No. 15. Colbert doesn’t see that as a hindrance to getting the  impact player that can lift the Steelers back into contention after spending the last two Januarys watching the playoffs from home.“The player that is going to be available to us at 15 in years past, you may have had to been picking at seven or maybe eight to get the same quality of a player,” Colbert said. “There are easily 15 players available that we will be very happy with if we are able to pick them.”Five things to look for as the Steelers try to recapture a little bit of the magic the franchise found two generations ago:STAYING PUT: Colbert isn’t big on moving up in the draft, instead preferring to stick to the script and see what’s available when the Steelers are on the clock. Considering the depth of this draft, he has already ruled out Pittsburgh trying to get into the top 10. That doesn’t mean the Steelers won’t listen if the phone rings with a team offering an extra pick or two to move up to No. 15.“The more picks the merrier,” he said.Pittsburgh last traded its first-round pick in 2001, when it flipped positions with the New York Jets and ended up taking five-time Pro Bowl nose tackle Casey Hampton, adding two more draft picks in the process.WIDE OPEN: While the team signed free agent wide receivers Darrius Heyward-Bey and Lance Moore to offset the departures of Jerricho Cotchery and Emmanuel Sanders, the one thing they lack is a red zone target capable of using his size to get position.Enter Allen Robinson? The 6-foot-3 former Penn State star is projected as a second-round pick, and the Steelers have never hesitated to mine the Nittany Lions for talent.MONITORING THE CORNER: A changing of the guard is underway at cornerback. Veteran Ike Taylor signed a new — and deeply discounted — deal in the offseason after ceding his spot as the team’s top defensive back last fall to Cortez Allen. The Steelers need size and speed in the secondary after finishing outside the top 10 in yards allowed for the first time this millennium.Pittsburgh hasn’t taken a cornerback in the first round since Chad Scott in 1997. With Taylor in the final stages of his career and nickel back William Gay better suited for the slot, it might be time to find Taylor’s heir apparent, perhaps as high as the first round.HELP WANTED LINE: Free agency hit Pittsburgh’s defensive line the hardest. Ziggy Hood — a former first-round pick who never quite lived up to expectations — left. So did Al Woods, while longtime end Brett Keisel remains unsigned after his contract expired.While Colbert said the door isn’t closed on a possible return by Keisel, the Steelers need to get younger and more athletic along the line.“We’ve lost more than we have added,” coach Mike Tomlin said. “Hopefully, with this weekend and beyond, we will rectify that.”LENGTHY PROCESS: Consider the Steelers fans of the NFL’s decision to push the draft back from April to May.“We got an opportunity to probably lay more eyes on more guys throughout the process, and get out,” Tomlin said. “I know I probably got to more pro days this year than I have in the past. I think the additional time created more of an opportunity for that as well.”___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.orglast_img read more

She’s doing all the work there. I just write the checks and keep my mouth shut (laughing).“I haven’t really looked at the race on paper, but it doesn’t matter if there’s pace or no pace. He can be close or 15 off. That’s Kent’s department, not mine. Exaggerator will work five furlongs Tuesday, and at this point, Kent’s supposed to be there (to work the colt).”Meanwhile, Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist, trained by Doug O’Neill for Reddam Racing, LLC, is doing well following a fever that caused him to miss the Belmont.“He jogged this morning (at Pimlico) and he’ll be here in two more days (Sunday),” said O’Neill assistant Leandro Mora at Santa Anita Friday morning. NO OBVIOUSLY, BUT D’AMATO HAS TWO IN SHOEMAKER MILE            Obviously, a two-time winner of Saturday’s Grade I Shoemaker Mile on turf, will stay in his stall this year, but leading trainer Phil D’Amato has entered two of his runners in the $400,000, “Win and You’re In” race that gives the winner a fees-paid berth in the Breeders’ Cup Mile to be run at Santa Anita on Nov. 5.D’Amato, leading runner-up Jerry Hollendorfer, 14-8, through 17 racing days, has entered Cape Wolfe and Midnight Storm in the Shoemaker.Cape Wolfe, a four-year-old English-bred gelding, is coming off a fourth-place finish in an overnight race at about 6 ½ furlongs on the hillside turf course May 12, but was fourth in the Grade II Arcadia Stakes at a mile on grass Feb. 13.“I think he’s ready for a mile this time around, so we’ll see,” D’Amato said of Cape Wolfe, winless but never worse than fourth in his four U.S. starts.As for Obviously, an eight-year-old Irish-bred gelding that won the Shoemaker in 2013 and 2014, D’Amato opted not to thrust the old war horse into a potential pace battle with East Coast invader and 9-5 morning line favorite Heart to Heart, a committed front runner trained by Brian Lynch.            “Obviously is doing well,” D’Amato said. “We’re just looking for a softer spot where it looks like he won’t get in a speed duel. We want a race where he can control the pace and do his thing.“I might run him at Belmont (Jaipur Invitational June 11 or the Poker Stakes on June 18) or Churchill (Wise Dan on June 18).”The Shoemaker, which goes as race six: Heart to Heart, Julien Leparoux, 9-5; Twentytwentyvision, Flavien Prat, 7-2; Tourist, Jose Lezcano, 5-2; Home Run Kitten, Joe Talamo, 5-1; Cape Wolfe, Mike Smith, 12-1; and Midnight Storm, Rafael Bejarano, 4-1.

The bay daughter of Henny Hughes earned Eclipse Awards at two, three and five.Now six years old and likely to race next year if all is well according to owner B. Wayne Hughes, who campaigns as Spendthrift Farm, LLC, Beholder has won 16 of 21 career starts and earned $4,496,600 under the patient and sagacious guidance of trainer Richard Mandella.“She’s matured and she is bigger and stronger,” said Stevens, who has been riding regularly in Kentucky the past month. “I don’t know if she’s any faster, but I think she is. I’ve been in Kentucky and I haven’t worked her since before her last race (the Adoration Stakes run on May 8), and that’s kind of been by Richard’s design.“She started realizing that when I got on her, she’d be getting close to a race, but I’ve been keeping track of her and it looks like Richard’s been filling my rocket booster pretty good.”Beholder has won her last six races by an average margin of nearly four lengths, but Stevens notes that “appearance and performance are two different things. The Pacific Classic (an 8 ¼-length romp against males last Aug. 22) looked easy, and it was easy, but Beholder puts a lot into her races.“Even after the Adoration (a handy two-and-a-half length score against five rivals), she lied down and slept. The races are easy, but that’s one of Richard’s great attributes: he knows what a race takes out of her, and he knows her so well he prepares her properly for each race.“From what I’ve observed and from what I’ve heard from my friends here whose opinions I respect, I’m really excited about tomorrow. People are already talking about (Beholder running in) the Pacific Classic, but it’s one race at a time. That’s horse racing and I don’t take any of them lightly.”Beholder worked four furlongs Tuesday in 48.60, breezing, with fractional times of 24.20 and 35.80.As for Gary’s personal agenda, the 53-year-old Hall of Fame rider has the immediate future mapped out.“I’ll go back to Kentucky probably Tuesday or Wednesday,” he said. “I’ll ride there and come back sometime before the Triple Bend (June 25) to ride Kobe’s Back. I’ll breeze him here Sunday morning (five furlongs for Peter Eurton).“I’m enjoying myself in Kentucky, I’m riding races, winning some, and it’s been a good Spring. It’s freshened me up and I’ll be ready for Del Mar.”Trainer John Sadler, meanwhile, is resigned to the fact that come-backing three-year-old filly champion of 2015 Stellar Wind drew the rail for the Vanity.“She’s doing well,” Sadler said of Stellar Wind, who has not raced since her second by a neck in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff last Oct. 30. “The post is what it is. It’s not the best post, that’s for sure, but she looks good.“We’ll take her over there and see how it goes tomorrow. It’s a starting off point.”The Vanity: Stellar Wind, Victor Espinoza, 3-1; Beholder, Gary Stevens, 1-5; Divina Comedia, Joe Talamo, 30-1; Taris, Flavien Prat, 5-1; Lost Bus, Fernando Perez, 20-1; All Star Bub, Rafael Bejarano, 30-1; and Finest City, Tyler Baze, 15-1.
