Woman In Fatal Stunt Pleads Guilty

Woman In Fatal Stunt Pleads Guilty”

A Minnesota woman has pleaded guilty to fatally shooting her boyfriend in a videotaped stunt they planned to post on YouTube.

Perez's YouTube channel featured videos of her and Ruiz performing stunts and doing pranks.

She says she fired from about a foot away.

The Star-Tribune reports that Perez pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter in connection to Ruiz's death. She was pregnant with the couple's second child at the time, and has since given birth.

She had tweeted hours before the failed stunt that they were going to probably shoot one of the most risky videos ever.

Ruiz had practiced shooting books and showed off one that a bullet did not penetrate in order to convince Perez, authorities said. Before that, Ruiz had apparently shot a similar book which stopped a bullet in its tracks.

In another video posted shortly before the shooting, the couple encourages viewers to send in challenges for them to carry out in front of a camera.

"Imagine when we have 300,000 subscribers", Perez says during a video.

In July, a 911 call revealed the moment after Ruiz was shot.

"We were doing a YouTube video, and it went wrong", a transcript of the call quoted Perez as saying. He was pronounced dead at the scene. She will be on supervised probation for five years, is prohibited from owning a firearm, and can not "make any financial compensation" from the video recording of Ruiz's death. She will serve six months in jail and then must be on probation for 10 years, according to the agreement cited by the newspaper.

She will receive her sentence in February and Norman County Attorney James Brue said recently that he met with some of Ruiz's family members on October 26 and they talked about the plea agreement.

Brue said he met with a sister of Ruiz's and a number of aunts on October 26, and "we talked abut this proposed [plea] agreement, and they indicated that they were in support of it". Their 3-year-old daughter was nearby when he was shot.
