Claudine 35 at the time later dated 30-year-old Olympic skier Vladimir “Spider”  Sabich who she shot on March 21, 1976, at her trial she said the gun accidentally discharged when he was showing her who to  used it, although there were several errors in her trial (cocaine in her blood, Sabich was bending over and 6 feet away from her when he was shot, from that distance it would have been hard to show her who a  gun worked) she was convicted of a lesser charge and served only 30 days in jail and paid a small fine. She is now married to Ron Austin, her attorney who defended her during her trial.

  1. What a great voice in the world, he will be missed, its truly a tragedy even though he has lived long. Andy brought alot of peace around our holidays when we were all kids in the 1960’s God may he rest in peace!

  2. This loss of Andy isn’t easy to take. He obviously had a good heart, even being willing to defend his ex-wife who deserted him! Wow! If he was able to forgive that much, then that is a sign he received forgiveness by God. I look forward to meeting him in Heaven. Until that day, his music will remain alive in my mind.

  3. God Bless Andy Williams! He brought that shy, sensative quality he had into our homes for a Christmas Show we looked forward to. He was the kind of man that you wanted as a true friend . Sang at Robert Kennedy’s funeral but was still a Republican & he went to the side of his ex-wife when she was in trouble. Hope that the years he spent at Branson, MO with his new wife were plesasant — the Ozarks has a beauty of its own.

  5. God Bless Andy Williams. I have many happy memories of watching his tv shows years ago – especially his Christmas Shows. I never made it out to Branson to see him in later years – wsh I had been able to do so.
    I know I’m dating myself, but back in the day – you had to be a talented entertainer to be on tv or have a show. Now any person with no talent whose claim to fame is that they behave badly can be on tv.
    Rest in peace, Andy. Your family can be so proud of the legacy you leave behind.

  6. Andy Williams was born in my home state and the same year I was born. I love his
    singing and have several of his albums. He was a very likeable guy and I feel like
    I’ve lost a friend. Sincere condolences to his family.

  7. Rest in peace, Andy! May light perpetual shine around you, Amen! Thank you for all the beautiful music you left us. I have a lot of your CDs, & watching your DVDs was & will continue to be part of my Christmas celebration. I love all your songs, but one of my favorites is ‘MAY EACH DAY” -a song of prayers with which you ended most of your shows. May God console & comfort your family, & ‘May the Lord always watch over them’, Amen.

  8. Great voice, he always brought great cheer around the holidays. Moom river that to us is a classice. Even mark twain would have agreed too. See you in heaven andy. In the mean time our thoughts goes out to the fans, and family. Torrie Twain

  9. although I am not american I am really really sad. I love his wonderful voice. His voice is from heaven and makes me fly. God Bless him.
