Our panel looks at the guilty verdict in the trial of Michelle Carter, convicted with involuntary manslaughter for encouraging her friend, Conrad Roy, to commit suicide via texts.

We also look at the shooting at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday, where four people were injured, including Congressman Steve Scalise (R-La.), who remains in critical condition.

And two leaders in the region announced they're stepping down this week — Jeff Immelt, CEO of GE, and Drew Faust, president of Harvard.
