The woman who is accused of the death of her identical twin sister doesn't recall the events leading up to the alleged murder.
According to the Camden County Prosecutor's Office, Amanda Ramirez, 27, was charged with aggravated manslaughter for the death of her sister Anna.
On June 22 at 5:40 am, police arrived at the scene and discovered Amanda with blood. Her stories to authorities have since been inconsistent.
Initially, she told police she discovered her sister's body and was unaware of what had happened, but later she said that an argument triggered the fight between them. After punching her sister, they fought before Anna retrieved a knife that she later gained control of and used to stab her sister in what she calls an act of self defense.
Authorities claim the fatal argument involved a boyfriend, but their 19-year-old sister Monika Medina maintains the twins were "inseparable" and wouldn't "fight over a man," as they both were in their own relationships.
"We don't believe this was a jealous act nor done purposely. We believe she didn't do such a thing," said Medina. "Detectives thought this is the next big thing, 'Sister kills twin over man.'"
During Amanda's courtroom appearance on Thursday, her attorney, Igor Levenberf, plead her case stating the alleged acts, if true, were not premeditated or purposeful, but reckless.
He asked that the witness statements discount statements from the witness as they did "not witness the actual stabbing." He also mentioned her clean record and requested that she be released on house arrest. Unfortunately, Amanda remains in custody without bail.
