Facebook argument turns to stabbing

By all accounts, Kayla Henriques, 18, and Kamisha Richards, 22, (pictured) were tight. So tight, that Richards threw a baby shower for her friend and was planning a first birthday party for Henriques' son, Alex.

But the young New York City women had a falling out over $20 less than a week ago, when Henriques asked her friend for the money to buy Pampers but used the money for other items.

Over the week, the feud moved to the Internet, where the women traded insults on Facebook through the weekend.

Then it all went tragically wrong. On Monday, Henriques confessed to stabbing Richards at Richards' home in East New York. Police found a kitchen knife at the crime scene and followed a trail of blood to Henriques' nearby home and arrested the young woman, said sources

Richards, a graduate of John Jay College of Criminal Justice, was awaiting her scores on the law school admittance test and hoped to start law school this fall.

*This is a shame! Once again, people take to Facebook, to fuel arguments/disagreements and it turns horribly wrong. Social media is a 50/50 tool of engagement. *
