A New York City woman who had been charged in a vehicle crash that killed a Broadway star's unborn baby, her 4-year-old daughter and another child was found dead Tuesday, having apparently taken her own life.

According to People, police were called to Bruns' Staten Island home on Monday afternoon by a friend who checked in on her, only to find her unconscious in her bedroom.

Sources say bottles of prescription pills were found nearby along with an apparent suicide note.

The triple-killing saw Bruns indicted by a grand jury on charges of manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide and assault.

Bruns suffered a seizure while stopped at a red light, promping her vehicle to lurch forward into the youngsters and pregnant mother. Two months after the crash, Miles and her husband, Jonathan Blumenstein, suffered more heartbreak when they lost their unborn baby.

Prior to the horrific March 5 auto crash that killed Joshua Lew, 1, and 4-year-old Abigail Blumenstein, Bruns had been instructed not to drive.

Liverpool stars must take blame for Euro slump, says Lallana
"We lost our mojo in the game, not in general", he said. "Away from home last season we were very good in the Champions League ". Liverpool's trip to the Parc des Princes on 28 November has assumed greater importance for both teams after this week's results.


Bruns had multiple sclerosis, which prompted questions about whether she was fit to drive.

Bruns was freed on $75,000 bond in September. She had been due back in court November 20.

She was 39 weeks pregnant.

Her health issues had become such that this past January she went on medical leave from her job at ClearCaptions.

Additionally in the past two years she accrued four speed violations and four red light violations.
