Question Total Energy Deposition

Hi Geant4 experts,

I'm new to geant4 and need help with problem getting the total energy deposited in my detector.

I have a thermal neutron interacting with Li6 to produce an alpha and a triton. In my steppingAction I have the below instruction:

 if (currentVolumeName == "NeutronDetector1")
   {
     eDep2 = step->GetTotalEnergyDeposit();
     if (eDep2 > 0.)
     {
       eventAction->AddEdepInStep2(eDep2);
     }
   }

I fill my histogram in EventAction as shown below:

void EventAction::AddEdepInStep2(G4double eDep2) 
  {
  TotalEnergyDeposit2+=eDep2;
  analysisManager->FillH1(1,eDep2);
  }

I got two peaks corresponding to the alpha and triton respectively. I was actually expecting a single peak corresponding to the Q-value of the reaction, but am getting two peaks. What have done wrong please?

Thank you Aliyu
