Woman, 27, who stabbed her identical twin sister to death in a boozy row sobs as she’s jailed for six years


A WOMAN who fatally stabbed her identical twin sister cried in court today as she was sentenced to six years in prison.

Amanda Ramirez stabbed her sister, Anna Ramirez, to death during an alcohol-fuelled fight outside an apartment complex in Camden, New Jersey, on June 22, reported.

Ramirez, 27, apologised prior to her sentencing: “I know there’s nothing I can say to justify what I did. I just want to make it clear that I never had intentions of taking my twin sister’s life.

“If I could take back what I did I would in a heartbeat,” she said, tears rolling down her face.

On September 5, Ramirez pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter - but claimed she had no recollection of what they fought about.

Jordan Zeitz, Ramirez’s attorney, told the court his client’s emotional issues and postpartum depression led to the killing.

Ramirez stabbed Anna once in the chest with a knife - but stayed with her until police arrived, according to

Assistant Prosecutor Peter Gallagher called the crime a “rather extraordinary set of circumstances“ at an earlier court hearing.

“The person who took Anna’s life is the person who by all accounts was closer to her than anyone on this planet,“ he said.

Ramirez will need to serve five years and one month before being eligible for parole.
