WASHINGTON (DC News Now) — A detective with the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) said the killing of a 16-year-old girl from Maryland Sunday morning took place after she and her accused murderer fought over sweet and sour dipping sauce.

Det. Brendan Jasper testified at the arraignment of the 16-year-old girl whom police arrested for the murder of Naima Liggon. MPD said both girls were from Waldorf, Md.

Jasper said the teenagers met three other people in Oxon Hill, Md., then drove to D.C. to go to a party. After leaving the party, the group headed to McDonald’s, located in at the corner of 14th and U streets NW.

The three other people who were with the girls told police that after the group got back into the car, the 16-year-old girl got into a fight about sweet and sour dipping sauce with Liggon and another girl. Jasper said they got out of the car and continued the fight outside.

During the fight, police said the 16-year-old girl stabbed Liggon, then stabbed her again after the fight, itself, ended and Liggon was getting back into the car.

The 16-year-old girl’s lawyer argued she acted in self-defense because Liggon and the other girl had beaten her.

The three other people took Liggon, who was stabbed in the abdomen and torso, to Howard University Hospital where she died. They told police that the 16-year-old girl accused of killing Liggon left the scene of the stabbing on foot. Officers found her in the 1300 block of U St. NW. They said they found a black pocket knife on her.

Liggon, who was a student at Thomas Stone High School in Charles County, Md., died the day before she was to start school for the academic year.

In the end, the judge found that charges of second-degree murder while armed, assault with intent to kill while armed, aggravated assault while armed, and felony assault while armed could stand, as sell as enough evidence to sustain the charges of possession of a prohibited weapon and carrying a dangerous weapon.

The 16-year-old girl’s lawyer asked the judge to put the girl on a 24/7 curfew, rather than order her to be held. The judge said the girl should be placed in the custody of the Youth Services Center in Northeast.

The next hearing for the 16-year-old was set for Sept. 1., which is the same date that a new curfew enforcement effort in D.C. was set to begin in order to reduce youth violence.
