Woman wanted for Hawaii murder arrested in Albany

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) –  A two-week search for alleged fugitive 38-year-old Alexandria Duval came to an end Friday night outside an Albany Teneyck Avenue apartment where State Police say she was living.

Court documents say she seemed drunk and police say she tried to flee. Duval is wanted on a 2nd-degree murder charge out of Hawaii for the death of her twin sister Anastasia Duval.

Authorities in Maui say Alexandria was driving a Ford Explorer on May 29th with her sister when they believe she drove off a 200-foot cliff during an argument with her sister who was killed in the crash.

Witnesses described the bizarre event.

“I could see a pair of hands yanking on the drivers head. Her head was going like this and she was angrily you know arguing with the person whoever was yanking on her head and then she was just in a rage,” A witness said.

The twins, according to reports, were inseparable and both have criminal records.

They are well known for their yoga studios in Florida where lived before abruptly leaving for Utah then Hawaii. They also changed their names, Anastasia formerly Ann Dadow and Alexandria formerly Alison Dadow.

Alexandria’s attorney says she didn’t intentionally kill her sister.

“Alison did not intend to harm the person she was closest to in this world,” Todd Eddins, Attorney for Alexandria Duval said.

Duval is being held at the Albany County Jail awaiting an extradition hearing to be brought back to Hawaii. That hearing could happen as early as next week.

Police have not said why they believe Duval came to Albany.

No one answered the door when NEWS10 ABC’s Lindsay Nielsen knocked on her door.
