A Korean woman who had “complete and total control” over her boyfriend has been charged with manslaughter for allegedly forcing him to commit suicide, The Boston Herald reports. Authorities say that Inyoung You allegedly sent over 700 “manipulative” text messages per day to Alexander Urtula, who died in May.

Back on May 20, Urtula, who was 22, jumped to his death from the top of a Boston parking garage. Just hours later, he was to receive his diploma from Boston College, and his family was in town from New Jersey to support him. They never got to see him graduate.
