A Hawaii woman was arrested on charges of murdering her twin sister by driving their SUV off a cliff, People magazine reported, and was released from custody last week after posting the $200,000 bail.
Alexandria Duval, 38, was charged twice with killing her sister Anastasia Duval after she drove the car the pair were in 200 feet off a Maui cliff last year. Initially, the case was dismissed due to lack of a probable cause, but she was later indicted on a second-degree murder charge.
Alexandria received only minor injuries in the crash, while Anastasia died.
Witnesses said that the sisters—both well-known yoga instructors—were fighting with each other, with Anastasia pulling Alexandria’s hair, in the moments before the crash.
A former boyfriend of Anastasia said that the sisters fought constantly. “There was just so much drama,” he told People.
“They went back and forth with each other, pulling hair, pinching each other…” he said, recalling one time the pair got into a fight at the mall. “It was as if they had blocked everything out around them.”
According to The Times-Union, Alexandria's attorney said "she is profoundly distraught," and he called the sisters "soul mates."
Alexandria has pleaded not guilty to the charges. The sisters were born Alison and Ann Dadow, but evidentally had changed their names by the time of the crash.
