A woman identifies her identical twin sister as her killer after she was stabbed and lay bleeding on the ground, a court heard.
The woman identified as Anna Ramirez identifies her twin sister, Amanda Ramirez as her killer. Amanda Ramirez was arrested and charged with aggravated manslaughter for the fatal stabbing of her sister Anna Ramirez in Camden, New Jersey.
Amanda, 27, was arrested in the early hours of Saturday and charged with aggravated manslaughter for the fatal stabbing of her sister Anna Ramirez.
Anna was reportedly stabbed in the left side of her chest during a fight outside their home in Camden, New Jersey.
A witness claimed she heard Anna say “Amanda, you stabbed me” as she lay bleeding on the ground, Camden County Superior Court Judge Edward McBride said today, citing the witness’ statement to police.
The unidentified witness had heard Amanda threaten Anna saying “watch what I’ll do” before the attack, it is alleged.
Amanda then allegedly went into the building to get a large kitchen knife, the New York Post reports.
According to reports, the witness – who lives in the same block – went downstairs after hearing the threat but Anna had already been stabbed.
These claims were heard at a bail hearing for Amanda.
Amanda reportedly burst into tears when she entered the courtroom and saw friends and family members – including her mum. Amanda continued to sob throughout the hearing and was not granted bail.
Investigations are still ongoing as the motive for the alleged attack is yet unknown.
