Martha ‘Sunny’ von Bulow, the heiress who spent the last 28 years of her life in a coma after two alleged murder attempts by her husband, died yesterday in a nursing home in New York. She was 76.

 

马莎·桑尼·冯·比洛——一个在昏迷中度过最后二十八年的女继承人,于昨天死在纽约的一家疗养院里,享年七十六岁,昏迷前,她丈夫曾两次被指控企图谋杀妻子。

 

Mrs Bulow , whose beauty once invoked comparisons with Grace Kelly, was at the centre of one of the most sensational court cases in American history.

 

比洛夫人长得很美。曾经,她的美貌可与格蕾丝·凯丽相互媲美,她是美国历史上最为轰动的法院案件的主角。

 

Her husband, Danish aristocrat Claus von Bulow, who lives in London, was convicted and then cleared of trying to murder her by injecting her with an overdose of insulin.

 

她丈夫——居住在伦敦的丹麦贵族克劳斯·冯·比洛被宣告有罪,克劳斯·冯·比洛还向妻子注射了大量胰岛素以掩盖谋杀的真相。

 

The tragic story was made into the 1990 film Reversal Of Fortune, in which the couple were played by Jeremy Irons and Glenn Close.

 

这个悲剧故事发生在电影“命运的逆转”(1990年上映)中,剧中的夫妇分别由杰瑞米·艾恩斯和格伦·克洛斯扮演。

 

Sunny had made her husband the main beneficiary of her £60million will. The Cambridge-educated barrister was first tried for attempting to kill her in 1982.

 

桑尼使她丈夫成为她六千万英磅遗嘱的主要受益人。早在一九八二年,这位剑桥大学毕业的出庭律师就曾企图杀害妻子。

 

Prosecutors said he wanted to get rid of his wife to inherit her wealth and to be free to marry his mistress.

 

检察官说,他想杀死妻子,以获得她的财产,自由地与情妇结婚。

 

He was found guilty and faced 30 years in prison but was acquitted at a retrial three years later at which medical experts argued that his wife’s coma was caused by drugs, excessive drinking and existing health problems. Mrs von Bulow spent the last 28 years being cared for by a team of nurses.

 

法庭宣判克劳斯·冯·比洛有罪,要在监狱中呆三十年,但在三年后的一次重审中,他又被宣告无罪。重审中,医学专家指出:他妻子昏迷的原因是:服用药品,过度醺酒和健康问题。在几个护士的照顾下,冯·比洛夫人度过了最后二十八年。

 

The von Bulows had a daughter, Cosima, who married an Italian count and lives in London. They have three children.

 

冯·比洛家有个女儿,叫Cosima,她嫁给了一位意大利法官,现住在伦敦。他们有三个孩子。

 

After the courtroom dramas in Rhode Island, Mr von Bulow agreed to give
up any claims to his wife’s estimated £27million fortune and to the £81,000-a-year income from a trust that she had set up for him.

 

罗得岛上的审判戏剧过后,冯·比洛同意不要妻子约二千七百万英磅的财产和托他保管的每年八万一千英磅收入。

 

He also agreed to divorce her, leave the US and never profit from their story. Now 82, he has a home in Kensington and writes arts reviews.

 

他还同意与马莎·桑尼离婚,并离开美国,放弃与马莎·桑尼过去共同拥有的财产。现在,八十二岁的克劳斯·冯·比洛在肯辛顿有一个家,他在写艺术评论。

 

Reversal Of Fortune was based on a book by Harvard law Professor Alan Dershowitz, who defended Mr von Bulow and also acted for OJ Simpson.

 

“命运的逆转”是根据哈佛法学教授阿兰·德绍维兹的所著书籍改编而成的,阿兰·德绍维兹曾在重审时为冯·比洛先生辩护,他还是辛普森案件的律师。

 

Prof Dershowitz said last night: ‘It’s a sad ending to a sad tragedy that some people tried to turn into a crime.

 

昨晚,德绍维兹教授说:“一幕悲剧最终以悲剧收尾”,一些人曾试图把悲剧变成一桩罪行。

 

‘There are no winners in a case like this. I’m happy to have played a role in getting the criminal conviction reversed because it was an unjust conviction but there were no victory parties or celebrations afterwards because there was a woman in a coma.’

 

“在这样的案子里,没有赢家”,我很高兴自己能在翻案过程中起到点作用,因为判决是不公正的。但判决后不会有获胜方或庆祝胜利的派对,因为案件中的女当事人处于昏迷状态。

 

Sunny, nicknamed because of her disposition, was born Martha Sharp Crawford, the daughter of a wealthy utilities magnate. She married her first husband, an Austrian golf instructor, in 1957 but divorced him in 1965.

 

桑尼出生时叫玛莎夏普克劳福,她是美国公用事业大亨克劳福的独生女。桑尼(与Sunny谐音)是人们对她的爱称,这样叫,是因为她所具有的独特气质。她在一九五七年与第一任丈夫—奥地利网球教练结婚,一九六五年与他离婚。
