Courtroom cameras brought von Bulow case home to viewers
Sunny von Bulow quietly passed away 10 years ago Wednesday. She had been in a coma for decades. Prosecutors said that coma was brought on by her husband, one-time Newport socialite Claus von Bulow.
His two attempted murder trials were big news stories in the 1980s. A decision earlier that decade to allow cameras in the courtroom enabled NBC 10 to cover the case in great detail.
