  • Sentencing awaits 20-year-old mom who killed boyfriend during YouTube stunt

A Minnesota woman who accidentally shot and killed her boyfriend in a YouTube stunt gone wrong has been sentenced to 180 days in prison after accepting a plea agreement.

Perez was asked by Ruiz, 22, to fire a gun from a 30cm away, as he held a hardback encyclopedia to protect himself from the bullet, in June past year.

Instead of the bullet lodging in the book as planned, it accidentally passed through, killing 22-year-old Ruiz in front of the couple's three-year-old child and nearly 30 onlookers at the pair's Halstad home. Perez was pregnant with their second child at the time of the shooting.

The fatal shooting was captured on two cameras that had been set up to record the stunt.

The sentence could have been more severe, but Norman County Attorney James Brue said it fitted the circumstances for the 20-year-old mother.

The pair had shot prank videos for publication on Youtube in the past and, before the shooting, Perez had tweeted: "Me and Pedro are probably going to shoot one of the most risky videos ever".

She told Perez that she missed the "funny, crazy, outgoing" Ruiz who took her on vacation in Arizona previous year. She has also been banned from owning firearms for life. She also told her that the Ruiz family doesn't hate her, but a scoff could be heard from one of Ruiz's loved ones as she said those words, WDAY reported.

Perez tweeted that it was her boyfriend's idea before they attempted the stunt. Ruiz had allegedly been trying to convince her to do the stunt for some time, and she eventually agreed after he showed her a book through which a bullet did not penetrate.

The judge gave MonaLisa Perez the opportunity to address the courtroom, but she said no.

The two ran a YouTube channel devoted to videos about their lives as young parents, as well as typical YouTube prank fare. "HIS idea not MINE", she wrote.

The channel remains live and has drawn millions of views since Ruiz's death.

Paulita Ruiz said it was a reminder of how foolish it is to take the risks Ruiz and Perez took just for internet fame and wealth.

She added: "All the insane stuff will [be] on his channel and mine. will be our family life!" The state has been experimenting with allowing judges to make the call, and The Forum joined with other news outlets in asking for access.
