Dying Woman Identifies Twin Sister As Her Killer After Being Stabbed
A woman identified her twin sister as her killer, as she lay bleeding to death on the ground, a court heard.
One witness allegedly heard Anna Ramirez, 27, say that her identical sister Amanda killed her. Amanda was later arrested and charged with aggravated manslaughter.
According to reports, Anna was stabbed in the left side of her chest after a fight broke out with her sister at their apartment block. The witness then reportedly heard Anna say: "Amanda, you stabbed me" as she lay bleeding on the floor.
Citing the witness statement to police, Camden County Superior Court Judge Edward McBride also reported that the unnamed witness had heard Amanda threaten Anna saying "watch what I'll do" before the attack.
As reported by the New York Post, Amanda then went into the building and came back out with a large kitchen knife. The witness, a neighbour of the sisters, went downstairs to see what was happening, but it was too late - Anna had already been stabbed.
The witness' claims were heard at a bail hearing for Amanda, where she apparently burst into tears when she entered the courtroom and saw her mum, friends and other members of the family.
Amanda showed remorse throughout the hearing, crying all the way through, reports say, but was not granted bail.
According to News.com.au, Anna was taken to hosptial but died less than an hour after.
A GoFundMe page has been set up for her funeral expenses.
It reads: "It is with great pain, grief and heart ache that we have to announce the untimely death of our beloved Anna Ramirez. God Blessed our family with Anna's life on January 8, 1992. Born beautifully and extremely loved.
