Facebook Sydney, March 2 (IANS) A quarrel that started on Facebook ended in bloodshed, as a 22-year-old was stabbed to death in a Brooklyn housing project in New York following an argument over $20 she lent her boyfriend’s sister for diapers.

Kamisha Richards was attacked Monday at 10.35 p.m. near her home at the Cypress Hills Houses on Sutter Avenue in east New York, police said.

She was stabbed once in the chest, The Daily Telegraph quoted police as saying.

Richards was taken to Brookdale Hospital, where she was pronounced dead a little later.

Police have caught the suspect Kayla Henriques, 18, mother of an 11-month-old boy.

On Sunday night, Richards and Henriques had a heated war-of-words on Facebook.

Henriques was arrested Wednesday morning and has been charged with second-degree murder. A friend of both women said Henriques always needed help.

“The day before yesterday she came to me looking for some pampers,” she said. “She was always low on stuff. Kamisha used to help out with the baby and used to baby-sit. She was even helping to plan the baby’s birthday party in May.”

The friend, who requested she not be named, also said Richards “didn’t like people who took advantage of her”.

“The whole thing stated when she loaned her $20 for pampers.”
