A Hawaii judge dismissed a second-degree murder charge Wednesday against a woman accused of having intentionally plunged her car off a cliff, killing her identical twin sister.

State District Judge Blaine J. Kobayashi ordered that Alexandria Duval, 37, be released after he found that prosecutors hadn't produced enough evidence to support the charge, which implies intentional murder.

Duval was at the wheel of a Ford Explorer with her sister, Anastasia Duval, when she drove through a rock wall along Hana Highway and off a sea cliff on May 29. Anastasia was killed, and Alexandria was critically injured.

Witnesses told investigators they saw the women fighting inside the vehicle. The passenger was pulling the driver's hair when witnesses saw the car "accelerate forward and then take a sharp left over the cliff," Maui Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Emlyn Higa said.

Alexandria Duval's defense attorney, Todd Eddins, told reporters this week that his client wasn't trying to hurt herself or "the person she most loved and was closest to in the world."
