Twenty eight years ago, Martha entered a persistent vegetative state. Her husband, Klaus, was acquitted of her murder twice. Have you seen the movie “Reversal of Fortune”? That’s the story.
US heiress Martha von Bulow, who spent almost three decades in a coma but was still at the centre of 1980s courtroom dramas, has died at the age of 76.
Mrs von Bulow, known as Sunny, was found unconscious in her Rhode Island mansion in December 1980.
Her second husband, Claus von Bulow, who is now a society figure in Britain, was acquitted of twice trying to kill her with insulin injections.
