NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (AP) - Prosecutors are investigating whether a Massachusetts teenager accused of encouraging her boyfriend to kill himself has violated her bail conditions by using social media.

Michelle Carter of Plainville is charged with involuntary manslaughter for allegedly sending Conrad Roy III dozens of text messages urging him to take his own life in 2014.

When she was released on bail, one of the conditions was that she not use social media except for school.

Prosecutors on Thursday told a judge they found a Twitter account that looks similar to the 18-year-old Carter’s old Twitter page. They asked to question Carter under oath, but the judge said prosecutors should get more information and return to court if they determine it is Carter’s page.

Carter’s lawyer said it is not his client’s page.
