A woman from New Jersey was arrested on Saturday in Camden after she allegedly stabbed her identical twin sister to death.

The 27-year-old woman, identified as Amanda Ramirez, was charged with aggravated manslaughter in the killing of her sister, Anna Ramirez, at around 5:30 a.m. in the Centennial Village Apartments complex on the 1200 block of East State Street, New Jersey, according to the Camden County Prosecutor's Officer. 

Authorities said that they received a call about an unconscious woman at the address and discovered Anna lying in a pool of blood with a stab wound to her chest.

She was rushed to Cooper University Hospital and was pronounced dead less than an hour later, according to the Daily Mail

Details about the motive in the stabbing have not been released by authorities. There are three other sisters in her family apart from the twins. 

Police later arrested Anna's sister Amanda and took her to the Camden County Correctional Facility.

The charge by the prosecutor's office, however, was not announced until Monday.

Amanda is now awaiting a pretrial hearing to determine whether she will be permitted to post bond or not.

A picture shared on a Facebook account, believed to be of the suspect, shows Amanda in June 2018, holding a baby girl in her arms.

On Saturday, just before 4 am, a cousin of the sisters shared a very brief video of them on her Facebook page, the video showed her sitting on what appeared to be a stoop with the twins as a young man in glasses has his arm around Anna. 

All four people appear to be in a happy mood in the clip as they took a selfie with their tongues out in the 2-second video.

Anna reportedly also shared a picture at 3:43 am, showing her huddling with her twin sister, their female cousin and the same man in the glasses.

She posted the picture with the caption: "You know the vibe."

The picture was shared less than two hours before she was found dead. 

An online obituary of Anna described her as a "devoted mother" of three daughters.

A GoFundMe page has also been set for the 27-year-old to gather fund for her funeral services. The page described Anna's death as an "extremely painful and unexpected tragedy," and adds that the mother-of-three was "known and loved by her peers" and that she had a "humble demeanor, kindness and willingness to give with a pure heart."

The page also stated that Anna had  "worked for many years in the medical field as a certified nursing assistant" and "enjoyed family dinners and weekly time hanging out with her sisters."

Anna's funeral is set to take place in Pennsauken on Thursday.
