A WOMAN allegedly killed her identical twin as a drunken love triangle row escalated, a court heard.
Amanda Ramirez, 27, was arrested and charged with aggravated manslaughter for the fatal stabbing of her twin Anna Ramirez in the early hours of Saturday.

Anna was knifed in the left side of her chest during a fight outside their home in Camden, New Jersey, it’s reported.
A witness claimed she heard Anna say “Amanda, you stabbed me,” as she lay bleeding on the floor, reports the New York Post.
The unidentified witness is also alleged to have heard Amanda threaten Anna saying, “Watch what I’ll do” before the attack, Camden County Superior Court Judge Edward McBride said.
It has also emerged investigators suspect the twins were involved in a love triangle with a man.
A law enforcement source told the Post: “A love triangle is being eyed as the motive for the fight that turned ugly and ended in the shocking stabbing of Anna Ramirez.”
An aunt of the two women, Blanca Class, told the New York Times that their mum said they’d been fighting over Anna’s boyfriend, although the aunt wasn’t sure about the extent of his relationship with Amanda.
She said: “They went to a party, they came home, they were drinking, they were arguing about a boyfriend.
“[Amanda] just went on a crazy trip, stabbed [Anna] and killed her.”
A 12-year-old neighbour told The Post that she witnessed the slaying outside the sisters’ family home.
The girl said the twins “were both drunk and arguing on the porch.”
“There was a guy with them. Anna said to the guy, ‘I’m tired of her,’” the neighbour said.
Amanda went inside and returned with a knife, the girl said, then “grabbed Anna by the head and pushed her on the ground and started stabbing her.”

Anna’s death came less than two hours after the sisters were snapped grinning with two pals in a photo posted to Facebook.
“You know the vibe,” read the caption on the snap.
The twins’ distraught relatives refused comment to reporters at a family home on Tuesday, The Post reported.
“She loved to spend time with her family and was a devoted mother,” read the remembrance.

“Anna had a special bond with her grandparents and enjoyed family dinners and weekly time hanging out with her sisters.”
During a court hearing on Thursday, Amanda’s defence lawyer didn’t contest probable cause for her arrest.
Camden Superior Court Judge Edward McBride ordered her held without bail.
