A woman has been jailed for shooting and killing her boyfriend in a botched YouTube "stunt" video.

Perez later plead guilty to 2nd degree manslaughter and was sentenced Wednesday to six months prison time - which she was allowed to serve in increments over the next three years to allow her to spend time with her newborn baby. She will be able to serve the time in either Minnesota or South Dakota, where is now living.

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

Even before they filmed the stunt Perez tweeted, "Me and Pedro are probably going to shoot one of the most risky videos ever".

UNCG finished the first half going 0 for 13 from 3-point range, before hitting just three in the second half to finish 3 for 22. Alonso and Troy both finished with 16 points for UNCG, while James Dickey had a double-double of 10 points and 11 rebounds.

Perez told police that Ruiz eventually "convinced" her to shoot the book he was holding, after he showed a her different book through which the bullet did not pass.

He had experimented previously and thought the thick book would protect him, but the couple's three-year-old child and almost 30 onlookers watched as she fired a fatal bullet.

For the stunt, Perez, who was pregnant with their second child at the time, fired a shot from a.50-caliber Desert Eagle pistol at Ruiz from a foot away.

"This comes from the heart, where you shot him", Ruiz's aunt, Paulita Ruiz, told Perez, WDAY-TV reported. Ruiz set two cameras, a GoPro and another camera higher up on a ladder.

The James Beard Award, according to their website, honors the late James Beard who "was a champion of American cuisine". Joe Briand, who had previously been the manager and sommelier at Herbsaint, is Bacchanal's wine director.

The sentence was well below the maximum 10-years imprisonment the offense carries, but Norman County Attorney James Brue said: "The reality [is] that 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".

She said the man's response was: "We want more viewers".

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

Perez and Ruiz were recording the stunt for their YouTube channel, which published videos of their daily lives and pranks.
