A Maui judge is ordering the release of a woman accused in the death of her twin sister after finding there's no probable cause for a murder charge.

Court records show Judge Blaine Kobayashi ordered the release of Alexandria Duval during her preliminary hearing Wednesday.

Prosecutors say Duval, who changed her name from Alison Dadow, intentionally caused the death of her sister when she allegedly drove them off a cliff last week.

Anastasia Duval, whose previous name was Ana Dadow, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Witnesses told police they heard them arguing before the crash and that the passenger was pulling the driver's hair.
