Bail Reduced for Twin Accused of Second Degree Murder
Alexandria Duval (also known as Allison Dadow) was involved in a deadly crash that claimed the life of her twin sister Anastasia Duval (also known as Ann Dadow) in the remote Puʻuiki area of East Maui, in which a vehicle plunged 200 feet off a cliff from the Hāna Highway. She has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The case drew widespread media attention with many news organizations sifting up information on the twin’s past as Yoga instructors on the mainland. Evidence presented at a preliminary hearing, failed to support a finding of probable cause and Duval was released in June of 2016, but arrested five months later on the strength of a warrant issued in connection with a grand jury indictment.
According to court records, Judge Peter Cahill granted a motion to have Duval’s bail reduced yesterday from $3 million to $200,000 cash bail or $2 million bail bond.
Under conditions of release, if Duval posts cash bail, she will be ordered to report to the Maui Intake Service Center within 24 hours of release, refrain from the use and/or possession of drugs and alcohol, and submit to random drug and alcohol testing. She would also be required to provide a physical home address, not leave the island of Maui without the permission of the court, and stay away from the airport terminal.
The pretrial conference has been continued for March 2, 2017 in Wailuku District Court.
