Before the OJ Simpson trial, the Claus Von Bulow case was the trial of the century. It was the first nationally televised criminal trial. This case has it all wealth, sex and murder.

She was a constant on the Manhattan and Newport society scene and her apparently aristocratic husband Claus, fit right in.

The case would culminate in a prolonged coma for Sunny and a possible life sentence for Claus Von Bulow. Tune in for more details!
