Since the incident, Michelle’s parents, David, and Gail Carter have discussed their daughter in public and in court.
The Roy family has crushed and continues to break our hearts, the parents remarked at the time.
“For anyone who does not know our daughter, she is not the evil portrayed by the media. She is a shy, sensitive, and nice young lady. She made a lot of effort to support Mr. Roy in his fight against depression. We are certain that our daughter will be cleared once all the information is made public.”
According to a report in Cosmopolitan, her father argued for her innocence after she was found guilty.
“I pray to God that you will remember Michelle was a disturbed, fragile youngster in a very tough circumstance who made a sad mistake. I am certain she was merely trying to do what she thought was best for Conrad.”
