YouTuber Jailed For Shooting Her Boyfriend Dead

Monalisa Perez

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 a year ago.

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

The shooting was witnessed by the couple's three-year-old daughter and Perez was pregnant with their second child at the time. Two cameras captured the shooting at the couple's house in Halstad.

"This comes from the heart, where you shot him", she said during Monalisa Perez's sentencing at the Norman County Courthouse. She may then serve the balance of her sentence via electronic home monitoring, Twin Cities Pioneer Press reports.

The Environmental Protection Agency deployed an on-site coordinator to help monitor air emissions, spokesman David Gray said. The flames have subsided at the site except for some hot spots, and the highway on which the plant is situated has reopened.

A few hours before the incident, Perez tragically tweeted: "Me and Pedro are probably going to shoot one of the most risky videos ever".

Perez told authorities that Ruiz had been trying to convince her to carry out the stunt "for a while" for Perez's YouTube channel that aimed to show "the real life of a young couple who happen to be teen parents".

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.

Adding: 'All the insane stuff will on his channel and mine will be our family life!' However, the bullet went through the book.

But the prosecutor, Norman County Attorney James Brue, made it clear the idea for the "foolish stunt" came from Ruiz; that was the reason for the relatively short sentence.

This video of MonaLisa Perez and Pedro Ruiz at the fair was posted on YouTube on June 26th last summer.

Part of the sentence is that she is not allowed to financially gain from the video of Mr Ruiz's death.

According to the woman, the whole YouTube stunt was her boyfriend's idea and that she agreed to do it after the man reassured her that it's totally safe. Since Ruiz's death, the view counts on the videos have gone up and the comments sections are dominated by remarks about the shooting.

Hearing date set for Stormy Daniels lawsuit against Trump
The photographer also confirmed a rumored anecdote of Daniels spanking Trump with a copy of Forbes magazine. She said she did not have the "vast resources" to fight Trump and lawyer Michael Cohen on her own.

Perez and Ruiz had been together almost six years at the time of the incident. The state has been experimenting with allowing judges to make the call, and The Forum joined with other news outlets in asking for access.
