Did she get away with Murder?: Charges dropped against Sexy Blonde yoga teacher Alexandria Duval accused of twin's murder

I think this is highly unusual for a judge to drop charges. 
This case should have gone to trial and let a jury decide the theory of the crime. 

NY DailyNews reports the Hawaii yoga teacher accused of killing her identical twin in a fiery SUV crash is set to be released after a judge dropped the second-degree murder charge.

Alexandria Duval was behind the wheel last week when she and her sister Anastasia Duval, plummeted 200 feet from a Maui highway and onto the rocks below.

One of 37-year-old passengers, who are originally from Utica, N.Y., was pronounced dead at the scene, though her twin survived after being taken to the hospital in critical condition.
Authorities said that witnesses had seen the sisters in a hair-pulling fight before the crash, which they said was caused by Alexandria running off the road on purpose.

On Wednesday Judge Blaine Kobayashi said that there was no probable cause for a murder charge, letting the driver, still in a sling, be released.
