A New Jersey woman was killed early Saturday morning, and now her identical twin sister is the prime suspect.

Anna Ramirez, 27, was found unconscious in a Camden apartment, the victim of an apparent stabbing, according to a release by the Camden County Police Department. First responders took her to Cooper University Hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.

A few hours later, officers charged Ramirez’s twin sister, Amanda, with first-degree aggravated manslaughter and took her to the Camden County Correctional Facility for a pretrial hearing.

Authorities have not provided a motive for the crime. NJ.com pointed out that the two sisters looked happy in a photo that Anna posted a few hours before her death.

Anna Ramirez worked as a certified nursing assistant for many years, according to an obituary posted by loved ones.

The tribute notes she “had a special bond with her grandparents and enjoyed family dinners and weekly time hanging out with her sisters.”

Ramirez leaves behind three daughters, according to a GoFundMe page set up to take care of her funeral expenses.

As of Tuesday afternoon, it has raised more than $1,425 toward a $10,000 goal.
