A judge in Hawaii has ordered the release of a twin sister after finding no probable cause for a murder charge in connection with a Maui cliff crash., the Associated Press reports. 

Alexandria Duval, who once ran a yoga studio in Palm Beach County with her sister, Anastasia Duval, was charged with murder after a car crash in Hawaii that killed her twin.

The 37-year-old sisters were traveling south on Hana Highway when their Ford Explorer crashed into a rock wall last week, plunging about 200 feet onto a rocky shoreline, the AP reported.

Anastasia Duval was pronounced dead at the scene. Her sister, Alexandria, was taken to a hospital in critical condition.

A Maui judge is ordering the release of a woman accused in the death of her twin sister after finding there's no probable cause for a murder charge.

Court records show Judge Blaine Kobayashi ordered the release of Alexandria Duval during her preliminary hearing Wednesday.

Prosecutors say Duval, who changed her name from Alison Dadow, intentionally caused the death of her sister when she allegedly drove them off a cliff last week.

Anastasia Duval, whose previous name was Ana Dadow, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Witnesses told police they heard them arguing before the crash and that the passenger was pulling the driver's hair.
