Coffee Mug Used As Weapon In Alleged Murder Of Pro Tennis Judge's Husband


By Paul Johnson

New York/California (CNN) - A professional tennis referee is charged with murder in the death of her husband. Police say Alan Goodman -- shown here in a driver's license photo -- was beaten to death with a coffee mug. The N-Y-P-D arrested Goodman's wife, 70-year-old Lois Ann Goodman.
At the time, she was in New York to work at the U-S Open. The New York Times reports Goodman originally told investigators that her husband died after falling down stairs at their home in California.
Investigators say there was an awful lot of blood in the home for that, eventually leading to the murder charge. In court, Goodman waived her right to fight extradition to California.
