Judge determined there was not enough evidence that the crash was intentional

A Hawaii woman who was accused of killing her twin sister by driving an SUV off a 200-ft. high sea cliff last month is no longer facing a murder charge after a judge dismissed the case.

The judge ordered the woman, Alexandria Duval, 37, be released Wednesday after determining that prosecutors hadn’t produced enough evidence to support the charge that she had intentionally driven the Ford Explorer off the cliff to kill her sister, NBC News reports.

Duval was seen arguing with her sister, Anastasia Duval, in the vehicle shortly before it accelerated off the Maui cliff, killing Anastasia and injuring Alexandria, according to court documents.
