Monalisa Perez, a Minnesota woman charged in the fatal shooting of her boyfriend, told authorities it was a YouTube video stunt gone wrong.

Perez, of Halstad, was charged Wednesday with second-degree manslaughter in the death of Pedro Ruiz III, reported The Associated Press.

According to a criminal complaint, the 19-year-old Perez told authorities Ruiz wanted to make a video of her shooting a bullet into a book he was holding against his chest. She says she fired from about a foot away.

Authorities say Ruiz died from a single gunshot wound to the chest.

The victim's aunt, Claudia Ruiz, told WDAY-TV that the couple played pranks and put them on YouTube.

Perez was granted a public defender and released on $7,000 bail.

The charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.
