A woman who shot her boyfriend in the chest and accidentally killed him as part of a Youtube prank gone wrong has been jailed according to reports.

Monalisa Perez, 20, was convicted of second-degree manslaughter for firing a Desert Eagle handgun directly into the chest Pedro Ruiz, 22, outside their home in Halstad, Minnesota.

BusinessInsider reports: Ruiz was holding a thick encyclopedia, which the pair thought would stop the bullet and leave him unharmed. Instead, the bullet pierced the book and killed him.

Perez called 911, but medics couldn't do anything for Ruiz.

Perez, who was pregnant with Ruiz's second child at the time, was being watched by their 3-year-old daughter and a crowd of 30 other people at the time, according to the BBC. Cameras were recording from two different angles.

She posted this tweet in the buildup to the stunt:

Authorities in Minnesota agreed a plea deal with Perez, which stipulated a 180-day term of confinement. She will spend 10 days in prison then 10 days under house arrest until the sentence is over.

She has also been permanently barred from owning firearms.

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