A pregnant woman in the US has been charged with manslaughter after accidentally shooting dead her boyfriend in what is believed to have been a YouTube stunt gone terribly wrong.
The 19-year-old was arrested by Minnesota Police on Monday after shooting at her 22-year-old boyfriend while he held a book to his chest, CNN reports.
It’s understood the pair were filming the stunt to upload it to their YouTube channel, local media say.
