(ConservativeHub.com) – On August 27, a teenager in Waldorf, Maryland was stabbed following an altercation about fast-food dipping sauce, according to recent reports.

A Superior Court magistrate judge in Washington, D.C., ordered that the suspect who is accused of stabbing the teen, identified as Naima Liggon, needed to be held in a juvenile facility until her hearing, which was held last week. FOX 5 DC has reported that the 16-year-old suspect is  facing several serious charges, including a second-degree member in connection to Liggon’s death.

Prior to her decision, Judge Sherri Beatty-Arthur stated in court that the incident had occurred because of a “dispute over sauce.”

On Sunday at 2:10 a.m. a group of teenagers went to a McDonald’s in 14th Street Northwest and U Street in Washington. The teens had arrived in Washington from Maryland to attend a party. While inside the vehicle, the group started having a dispute about the fast-food chains’ sweet and sour dipping sauce. The teens proceeded to exit their vehicles as the fight became physical. One defense attorney claimed that Liggon jumped the suspect who proceeded to stab her in self-defense.

However, prosecutors have stated that the surveillance footage allegedly showed that the fight had stopped as the suspect lunged toward Liggon who was going back to the vehicle. Following the incident, Liggon was taken to Howard University Hospital to be treated for her wounds in her torso and abdomen but was pronounced dead after arriving at the hospital.

Liggon’s mother, Joy Liggon, spoke to FOX 5 about the loss of her daughter who was meant to be starting school again in the following week.
