ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A woman accused of killing her twin sister by driving their SUV off a cliff in Hawaii is fighting her extradition from New York to face a murder charge.
A lawyer for 38-year-old Alexandria Duval said Friday at her court appearance that it’s “highly likely” his client’s case is headed to an extradition hearing. She was tracked down in Albany and arrested a week ago.
A grand jury in Hawaii indicted her on a second-degree murder charge last month.
Authorities say Alexandria was driving an SUV in May with her sister, Anastasia Duval, in the passenger seat when the vehicle crashed into a rock wall and plunged about 200 feet.
Authorities say the sisters were fighting over the steering wheel. Alexandria Duval’s attorney says the crash was a “heart-shattering” tragedy.
