Verdict reached in murder trial involving twin sisters driving off Hawaii cliff

It's a not guilty verdict for Alexandria Duval, a woman accused of intentionally driving off a cliff in Hawaii and killing her identical twin sister.

In 2016, Alexandria was driving on the island of Maui along the Hana Highway with her sister, Anastasia, in the passenger seat.  Reports indicate a witness heard the two arguing when their Ford Explorer plunged 200 feet off a cliff.  Anastasia died at the scene.

Alexandria Duval was arrested after the accident, but a judge later ordered her released after finding no probable cause.  She was then arrested again months later after a grand jury indicted her.

Duval and her attorneys had opted for a judge to rule her trial, instead of having a jury decide her fate.  She did not testify in her trial.  

The sisters, born Alison and Ann Dadow, operated yoga studios in Florida before they changed their names. They moved to Hawaii together in 2015.
