"It was just a prank gone wrong", she told the Twin Cities Pioneer Press.
A pregnant Minnesota woman was arrested and charged on Wednesday with second-degree manslaughter after shooting and killing her boyfriend during a YouTube stunt gone wrong. Police say she shot Ruiz with a.50-caliber handgun from about a foot away, but the book (a hardcover encyclopedia, per the Minneapolis Star Tribune) did not stop the bullet, which entered his chest.
Perez told police that Ruiz wanted to make a video of her shooting a book as he held it. Another aunt says Ruiz's family is supporting Perez: The death of her partner of six years is "the worst punishment she can get".

On the 1989 tour, she was constantly donning the skater skirt and jazzing it up with an assortment of crop tops and sports coats. She attended her first Academy of Country Music Awards just five months before her first album was released, that was in 2006.
Highway 75 was closed at the house near 500 block as witnesses saw Ruiz being given chest compressions. Live-saving efforts were made and a medical helicopter was called, but 22-year-old Pedro Ruiz was pronounced dead at the scene. It was not immediately clear when or if a trial for the manslaughter charges against Perez would begin.
"I don't know why they thought the book was supposed to stop the bullet", said Ruiz.
"Everyone was crying. I just couldn't take it anymore so I had to go back home", a neighbor, Wayne Cameron, told WDAY. "'Why are you going to use a gun?" Claudia also recalled a conversation she had with Pedro, in which Pedro discussed the logistics of the prank video.

The Boeing and Airbus outlooks are broadly similar, though the US manufacturer counts smaller planes not in its rival's forecast . It said this would allow it to lower fares "while ensuring that Ryanair remains Europe's greenest and cleanest airline".
Perez, whose YouTube channel features other pranks, including giving her boyfriend a doughnut sprinkled with baby powder, is due to appear in Norman County District Court on 28 June.
"I wish they wouldn't have done it", Claudia Ruiz said. "Why?' 'Because, we want more viewers'".
