The attorney for Adam Kaufman, the Aventura developer on trial for the death of his wife, Eleonora Kaufman, said a spray tan could have been responsible for her death in November 2007. Dr. Bruce A. Hyma, the chief medical examiner, ruled in April that she died from mechanical asphyxiation. Attorney Bill Matthewman said in a bond hearing that arsenic or some other accidental poison in a spray tan, which Eleonora got the day before she died, led to her death.
