Fatiha Marzan, a 21-year-old Florida woman was charged with first-degree murder for allegedly stabbing her sister to death after learning she had been flirting with her boyfriend.
Fatiha Marzan reportedly killed her younger sister, 20-year-old Sayma Marzan, at 4:30 a.m. on Sept. 26 in the bedroom they shared in the family’s Orlando home, according to local reports.
Fatiha had just found out that her long-distance boyfriend of five years and her sister had been flirting with one another in messages exchanged through a video game they played together, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
Both witnesses and Fatiha said the older sister was not comfortable with the relationship Sayma had with Fatiha’s long-distance boyfriend.
After learning that her boyfriend had told Sayma that he loved her, Fatiha purchased a ‘dagger-style’ knife set off of Amazon.
She hid the knives in a closet and waited until the Marzan family fell asleep before stabbing Sayma in the bedroom they shared.
‘Fatiha knew she had to wait until her family was asleep to stab Sayma because she did not want anyone to hear the incident,’ the affidavit stated.
‘Fatiha consciously decided to kill her sister, Sayma, and the decision was present in her mind at the time of the killing.’
Because the sisters shared a bedroom and a bed, Fatiha was able to see Sayma talking to her boyfriend, who has not been named, she told police.
Fatiha confronted the pair, telling them that she was not comfortable with how Sayma spoke to her boyfriend.
After multiple confrontations about the issue, however, Fatiha says she suspected her sister did not respect her.
She waited until 4:30 am to stab her younger sister in her sleep. Sayma woke up during the attack and said, ‘What the f**k?’ and ‘help.’
