Perez will only serve 90 days of the sentence, and the remaining 90 will be stayed for three years.

Prior to the stunt, Perez had tweeted her reservations.

Monalisa Perez, 20, killed Pedro Ruiz at close range while he held a thick book in front of him. The couple's three-year-old child and nearly 30 other people were watching at the time.

The young couple had a YouTube channel in which they vlogged about "the real life of a young couple who happen to be teen parents" as well as posting pranks. Perez, standing barely a foot away, squeezed off a shot from a.50-caliber Desert Eagle pistol, to see whether the bullet would go through the book.

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.

Perez, who was pregnant with Ruiz's second child at the time, was being watched by their three-year-old daughter and a crowd of 30 other people at the time, according to the BBC.
