Boston college student charged for boyfriend’s suicide

A student from the Boston college charged with involuntary manslaughter after her boyfriend committed suicide in May.

The indictment of 21-year-old Inyoung You over the death of 22-year-old Alexander Urtula, was announced in the US state of Massachusetts on Monday.

Urtula died hours before his graduation on 20 May.

The attorney said the South Korean national, had been abusive towards Urtula.

Suffolk District Attorney Rachael Rollins revealed that after an “extensive investigation” police determined that she “was physically, verbally and psychologically abusive towards Urtula during their 18-month-long tumultuous relationship”.

“The abuse became more frequent, more powerful and more demeaning in the days and hours leading up to Urtula’s death,” the attorney said.

She said that the couple had exchanged more than 75,000 text messages in the two months prior to Urtula’s death.
In her posts, You urged Urtula to “go kill himself” and “go die”, the attorney said.

She added that on 20 May You “was tracking Urtula’s location and went to the Renaissance garage” where he killed himself.

Inyoung You is currently in South Korea.
