Courtroom cameras brought von Bulow case home to viewers

Cameras were in the courtroom for the murder trials of Claus von Bulow.

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.
