Tragedy befell a New Jersey home on Saturday morning after a twin sister allegedly stabbed her own sister to death over a man with whom they were both romantically involved. The twin sister, Amanda Ramirez has been charged with aggravated manslaughter in Anna’s death.
A judge revealed in court on Thursday that Anna Ramirez identified her identical twin sister as the person who killed her after she stabbed her in the chest during a fight outside their home on Saturday.
The tragic incident happened less than two hours after Anna posted a photo on Facebook that shows them smiling with two pals.
An aunt of the twin sisters told New York Times that their mom said they’d been fighting over Anna’s boyfriend, although the aunt wasn’t sure about the extent of his relationship with Amanda.
“They went to a party, they came home, they were drinking, they were arguing about a boyfriend,” Blanca Class said.
“[Amanda] just went on a crazy trip, stabbed [Anna] and killed her.”

A 12-year-old neighbor who witnessed the fight outside the sisters’ family home at the Centennial Village Apartments, told Nypost that the twins “were both drunk and arguing on the porch.”
“There was a guy with them. Anna said to the guy, ‘I’m tired of her,’” the neighbor said.
Amanda went inside and returned with a knife, the girl said, then “grabbed Anna by the head and pushed her on the ground and started stabbing her.”
Amanda’s defense lawyer reportedly didn’t contest probable cause for her arrest during a court hearing on Thursday June 27.
Camden Superior Court Judge Edward McBride ordered her held without bail after saying a witness described hearing Anna say, “Amanda, you stabbed me!” as she lay bleeding on the ground.
An unidentified witness also reportedly heard Amanda Ramirez threaten Anna before the tragic incident.
“Watch what I’ll do!” Amanda allegedly said before going into the building to retrieve a large kitchen knife.
