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

However, on Wednesday, the judge decided that the woman did not intentionally murder her boyfriend and that he was merely the aftermath of a miscalculate and idiotic prank. The channel has 18 videos and is still up today.

Monalisa Perez, now 20, pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter in the death of Pedro Ruiz, 22, who she had been dating for five years.

The stunt that killed him June 26 involved Perez shooting a powerful handgun at a thick, hardcover book that he held to his chest in the mistaken belief that it would be enough to stop the.50-caliber bullet.

Monalisa Perez believed Pedro Ruiz would be shielded by a thick book as she took aim from close range in front of onlookers.

Judge Jeffrey Remick ordered Monalisa Perez to serve the first 90 days of her sentence in ten-day increments over three years.

Perez was sentenced, but Ruiz's family is not happy.

Perez has a YouTube channel with many videos the couple made involving various stunts and pranks.

Crude Oil Steady Above USD61 Despite Shale Boom
West Texas Intermediate for April delivery rose 23 cents to settle at $61.19 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. In 2017, world oil demand growth is revised higher by 23 tb/d from February's assessment to reflect the latest data.

The young man, who had hoped for internet fame, presented Perez with another book with a bullet hole on one side and no exit hole, as proof his plan would work, police said.

The pair had filmed several YouTube videos in the run up to the accident, and Perez tweeted prior to filming that: "Me and Pedro are probably going to shoot one of the most risky videos ever". "HIS idea not MINE".

Perez, who retains custody of their two small children, will serve her six-month term 30 days per year for the next three years and then become eligible to serve the rest on electronic home monitoring, as long as she abides by the terms of her 10-year supervised probation.

Authorities found Ruiz with a single gunshot wound to his chest and attempted to save his life, but he died at the scene.

"She's getting to pick when she is doing her time, when she gets to sit, I don't think it's fair, we don't have him ever again", said Claudia. Since Ruiz's death, the view counts on the videos have gone up and the comments sections are dominated by remarks about the shooting.

Under the plea agreement, Perez is banned for life from possessing a firearm and can not receive payment for telling her story.
