A hearing is scheduled today regarding a motion to dismiss a murder charge against a Utica native who is accused of killing her twin sister.
In May 2016, Anastasia Duval was killed when the vehicle she and her sister were in plummeted 200 feet down a cliff in Hawaii. Alexandria Duval, who only sustained minor injuries in the crash, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder, then released soon after.
Alexandria Duval was then arrested again months later in Albany after a grand jury indicted her.
A witness claims they saw the two women fighting in the SUV before it went over the cliff. Alexandria Duval’s defense claims that a Maui detective gave incorrect testimony about what the eyewitness saw.
The two sisters were born in Utica and graduated from Notre Dame High School under the names Alison (Alexandria) and Ann (Anastasia) Dadow.
