In Washington DC, a 16-year-old girl was stabbed to death after an argument over sweet and sour sauce. The stabbing incident occurred in front of a McDonald’s branch entrance.
Washington Top News reports three girls arguing in front of the restaurant after a disagreement over the sweet and sour sauce. The victim, Naima Liggon, attacked another 16-year-old girl with a friend, who initially did not fight back. As Liggon and her friend were about to get into a car, the 16-year-old girl approached Liggon and stabbed her in the stomach and chest. After a report, the local emergency services rushed to the crime scene, and Liggon was rushed to hospital. There, she succumbed to her injuries.
The underage suspect was apprehended near the crime scene with the knife still in her possession. Her lawyer pleaded for her release at a hearing last Monday, claiming his client acted in self-defence and has no criminal record. However, the judge disagreed: “At the end of the day, someone is dead because of an argument over sauce.”
The victim’s mother called the stabbing incident “pointless”. “I don’t understand how a fight over sweet and sour sauce or any other subject could end in a murder,” Joy Liggon told Washington Top News. “Naima was beautiful, smart, funny and unique. She loved life, “ she added.
During the hearing, the judge ruled that the perpetrator must remain in custody for the time being. The 16-year-old is suspected of premeditated manslaughter, aggravated assault and possession of a prohibited weapon. She is due back in court on Friday.
