Martha "Sunny" von Bulow has passed away in a New York city nursing home after being in an irreversible coma for 28 years.
Von Bulow’s husband, Claus - a Danish born lawyer, was convicted and later acquitted of making 2 attempts to kill his wife with insulin overdoses. He is alive and well living in London.
The story was dramatized in a 1990 movie, "Reversal of Fortune," starring Glenn Close and Jeremy Irons, based on a book by Alan Dershowitz. Dershowitz is a law professor who also defended Claus von Bulow.
