Woman wants charge of killing twin in cliff crash dismissed

Posted: Updated:
HONOLULU (AP) -

An attorney for a woman accused of deliberately driving off a cliff in Hawaii and killing her identical twin sister says prosecutors misled the grand jury that indicted her.
  
A defense motion seeks to dismiss the murder charge against Alexandria Duval. It says a Maui detective gave incorrect testimony about what an eyewitness saw.
  
The prosecutor says it will be up to a jury to decide on the evidence.
  
Authorities described the 2016 crash as a hair-pulling fight over the steering wheel. Anastasia Duval died, and her sister was arrested.
  
A judge found no probable cause and released Alexandria Duval, who was arrested again in Albany, New York after the grand jury indicted her.
  
A hearing on the defense's motion is scheduled for Tuesday.
