Martha Sunny von Bulow mysteriously slipped into two separate comas - almost a year apart. She has not yet recovered from the second coma which struck 17 years ago.
AMERICAN JUSTICE® presents the strange case of Sunny and Claus von Bulow and the crime that some say was never committed.
Sunny von Bulow's children claim that their stepfather, Claus von Bulow, tried to murder their mother twice with a dosage of insulin. His motives were the millions of dollars he would inherit. Claus claims Sunny was suicidal over the end of their marriage and that no crime was ever committed.
Claus von Bulow was convicted twice of attempting murder but famed Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz constructed an appeal that devastated the prosecution's circumstantial medical case.
Von Bulow's convictions were overturned. Convinced von Bulow was guilty, the state prosecuted him again and the result was another not-guilty verdict. Some believe a guilty man is walking the streets because of a technicality in the law. Is he? Was a crime ever committed?
