Jurors deliberated for a second day in Claus von Bulow’s retrial in Providence, R. I., without reaching a verdict on charges he twice tried to murder his wealthy wife with insulin injections. The panel spent much of the day reviewing conflicting medical testimony on the cause of the first of Martha (Sunny) von Bulow’s two comas. The jurors also asked to rehear, upon their return today, testimony about a needle and a vial of insulin allegedly found in Von Bulow’s closet. Meanwhile, Father Philip A. Magaldi, 49, of North Providence, a Roman Catholic priest, was indicted on charges he lied in an affidavit that supported Von Bulow’s contention that he had been framed, the Boston Globe reported.
