Twin Charged for Murder Again After Driving Off Cliff in Crash That Killed Her Sister
A woman who allegedly killed her twin sister has been charged for the second time with murder after she drove a vehicle off a cliff in Hawaii with both of them inside over the summer, killing her twin.
Alexandria Duval, 38, was charged with second-degree murder and arrested again in her Albany, New York, home Friday after a warrant for her arrest was issued at the end of October, according to reports.
Duval was initially arrested after the June tragedy when witnesses said they saw the twins arguing in an SUV in Maui before it slammed through a rock wall and went over a 200-foot, seaside cliff.
Anastasia Duval was pronounced dead on the scene, while Alexandria had critical injuries.
Alexandria pleaded not guilty to the charge of second-degree murder and the charge was later dropped after a judge determined there was no probable cause to support the charge.
She’s now awaiting extradition to Hawaii in an Albany jail.
Alexandria spent three weeks in an upstate jail after the crash in August for a DWI, according to reports, the most recent of many arrests comprising the twins' checkered pasts.
The two have a criminal history that includes arrests for public intoxication, driving under the influence, assaulting a peace officer and battery, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported, citing 2014 and 2015 court records from Florida and Utah.
They were also reportedly known for running yoga studios and then abandoning them, leaving behind unpaid debts and employees.
Hawaii was reportedly supposed to be a fresh start for the pair, but they were evicted from their rental home and forced to move to a budget hotel, according to reports.
The pair had reportedly been fighting constantly and the latest of their dust-ups led to the tragic crash, according to reports.
Prosecutors initially said that although the charge was dropped, Alexandria may not be off the hook because they were considering all charges and believe “a crime has been committed.”
