Woman who fatally shot boyfriend in YouTube stunt sentenced

Woman to serve 6 months after killing boyfriend in video stunt

The mother of two will serve an alternating sentence for the first six months - 10 days in jail and 10 days out - in the USA state of South Dakota where she now resides. She will be able to serve the time in either Minnesota or South Dakota, where is now living.

The remaining 90 days of her prison sentence will be served at home in confinement.

According to the Star Tribune, Perez pleads guilty and on top of her 180-day sentence she also received a lifetime ban possessing a firearm or receiving payment for telling this story.

Back in 2017, Monalisa and Pedro announced on their official YouTube channel that they would be staging a new stunt - one that's very risky and potentially deadly. He thought the 1.5in (4cm) book he was holding in front of his chest would stop the bullet from hitting him.

The bullet pierced the book, and Ruiz fell mortally wounded.

Monalisa Perez fatally shot her boyfriend in a botched YouTube stunt. Come morning, Monalisa and her boyfriend left the house and set up two cameras in their front yard.

Norman County Attorney James Brue said Monday, "I expect her to be sentenced with what is outlined" in the plea agreement.

Numerous videos featured the couple doing "pranks", "stunts", and "challenges" and some videos featured their three-year-old daughter.

A deadly shooting that started as a YouTube prank resulted in an official criminal sentencing Wednesday.

Perez has since given birth to the couple's second child.

She said she fired from about a foot away. Authorities found Ruiz with a single gunshot wound to his chest and attempted to save his life, but he died at the scene.

"We were doing a YouTube video, and it went wrong", Perez said on the 911 call.

Remick explained in a rare weekend court filing that he was saying no to the Star Tribune and the Fargo Forum newspapers, and television stations WDAZ in Grand Forks and KSTP in the Twin Cities because the case involves domestic violence, and out of his concern that the cameras would inhibit Ruiz's loved ones from making victim impact statements and keep Perez from "fully engaging" in whatever she might say during sentencing. Since Ruiz's death, the view counts on the videos have gone up and the comments sections are dominated by remarks about the shooting.
