Woman who killed BF in YouTube stunt gets 180 days in jail

Woman who killed BF in YouTube stunt gets 180 days in jail

She was pregnant when she used a.50 caliber Desert Eagle to shoot 22-year-old Pedro Ruiz III, who was holding a thick Encyclopedia in front of his chest.

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 accepted the plea deal and ruled that Perez, who is the mother of two small children, can serve the sentence in 10-day increments in South Dakota, where she now resides.

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

Norman County Attorney James Brue said Monday, "I expect her to be sentenced with what is outlined" in the plea agreement. She was spirited away by her family after the hearing before reporters could ask questions.

Chillingly, just hours before Ruiz was fatally shot, Perez tweeted that the pair had planned to film "one of the most unsafe videos ever".

Before the tragedy occurred, the camera can be seen panning towards Perez who explained to the couple's YouTube subscribers what she and Pedro were about to do. She has also been banned from owning firearms for life. However, a relative of Ruiz told media that Perez knew what she was doing. A 19-year-old Minnesota woman, charged with manslaughter for fatally shooting her boyfriend in the chest, in a stunt for a YouTube video, was sentenced to 6 months in prision an March 14, 2018.

"This foolish stunt was dreamed up, planned, and executed by Pedro Ruiz, and the defendant wrongfully and tragically relied on his assurances that the stunt was safe", the prosecutor told The StarTribune.

"HIS idea not MINE", Perez tweeted just hours before the incident.

The sentence is below the usual minimum guidelines, but was allowed to stand on the grounds that the stunt was mostly Ruiz's idea.

The couple was after fame and followers for their YouTube channel, which features a number of light-hearted pranks.

The channel remains live and has drawn millions of views since Ruiz's death. The state has been experimenting with allowing judges to make the call, and The Forum joined with other news outlets in asking for access. Please hurry up, ' Perez told the 911 dispatcher in June 2017.
