    What to Know

    • Camden County's prosecutor announced 27-year-old Amanda Ramirez is charged with aggravated manslaughter in the death of her sister, Anna.

    • Police found Anna unconscious at the Centennial Village Apartments on Saturday morning.

    • There is no known motive for the crime and the investigation is ongoing.

    Authorities say a New Jersey woman stabbed her identical twin, a mother of three, to death.

    Camden County's prosecutor announced on Monday 27-year-old Amanda Ramirez is charged with aggravated manslaughter in the death of her sister, Anna.

    Police found Anna unconscious with stab wounds on East State Street at the Centennial Village Apartments in Camden on Saturday morning. She was taken to a hospital, where she died.

    "It's an immense pain for the family," aunt Elizabeth Class said, holding back tears. "My sister [the twins' mother] is suffering. The entire family, the girls' dad [are suffering]."

    Neighbors said Anna Ramirez frequently visited her sister at the apartment complex. Class said the pair, "...loved each other very much. My nieces were very good girls and hard-working."

    While neighbors said that the sisters could be heard arguing before the attack, authorities have not released a motive in the stabbing and officials say the investigation is ongoing.

    Amanda Ramirez is held in the county jail on involuntary homicide charges pending a pretrial detention hearing. It was unclear if she has an attorney who could comment on her behalf.
