Yoga twins murder trial: CNY native found not guilty of killing sister

Yoga twins murder trial: CNY native found not guilty of killing sister”

Alexandria Duval a 39 year old yoga instructor accused of deliberately driving off a Hawaii cliff and killing her twin sister was on Thursday found not guilty.

Alexandria Duval was accused of killing her twin sister after their vehicle plunged off a Maui Cliff in May 2016.

Alexandria Duval was arrested, but a judge later ordered her released after finding no probable cause for a murder charge.

On Wednesday, it was revealed in court that Alexandria had dressed up in her dead sister's clothes and flirted with her boyfriend shortly after the fatal crash.

Closing arguments are set for this afternoon with a ruling expected as early as today in the jury waived bench trial which is presided over by Judge Peter Cahill.

Alexandria Duval (also known as Allison Dadow) was involved in a deadly crash that claimed the life of her twin sister Anastasia Duval (also known as Ann Dadow) in the remote Puʻuiki area of East Maui, in which a vehicle plunged 100-200 feet off a cliff from the Hāna Highway. She made a trip to upstate NY and was captured months after the fact in Albany after a fantastic jury arraigned her.

While Duval's attorneys argue the deadly crash was a tragic accident, prosecutors argue that she purposely accelerated before going over the cliff and meant to hurt or kill her sister. "If they were fighting over the wheel, there would be indications of that". "I had a feeling she wasn't really telling the truth", shelter volunteer Kahili Moniz reportedly told Gossip Extra.

"That tells me that in the critical period, the deceased pulled her sister's hair so hard that she could yank it out of her scalp", he said. Alexandria did not testify.

Anastasia's boyfriend Francisco Bailey told the Maui News that he and Anastasia had planned to go on a camping trip alone on Memorial Day weekend, but that Alexandria had insisted on joining them.

"When they drink, their personalities change", Bailey told the Maui News.

He said he saw "a lot of gestures, like they were going at it" and "hair-pulling and punching".

Witnesses testified seeing the women arguing on the narrow highway. "You can't envision losing your twin sister in that sort of cataclysmic, awful mishap, at that point being accused of causing the death of your sister, which she didn't".

The sisters, born Alison and Ann Dadow in the Utica, N.Y., zone, worked mainstream yoga studios in West Palm Beach before they changed their names.

They moved to Hawaii in 2015 from Utah, and planned to start over with another yoga studio.

Prosecuting Attorney J.D. Kim was a little less thrilled, telling the Associated Press that, "I'm disappointed". 'The facts clearly show it was at least reckless behavior'.
