In the summer of 1977, Claudine Longet was on trial for the death of her boyfriend and Olympian, Spider Sabich. She had been living with him in the famous ski resort town, Aspen Colorado. Spider asked Claudine and her three children to move out. On March 21, 1976, Spider returned home from skiing and took a shower. Claudine, who had been drinking white wine at a local bar, approached him in the bathroom with a .22 caliber pistol and asked him how to use it. Her story was that it accidentally fired into him. Andy Williams flew into Aspen to be by her side. Andy stayed at the home owned by John Denver. She was convicted of negligent homicide and spent thirty days in jail. Claudine never spent any jail time and asked the court if she could fly to Mexico. They allowed it. She ended up marrying her defense attorney. There are no current photos of Longet. She lives under the radar and resides in Aspen.
Spider's brother, Steve Sabich was quoted "It's a shame because Spider accomplished so much in his life. Claudine accomplished only two things, marrying Andy Williams and getting away with murder"
