Lois Goodman, professional tennis referee, appears in a Los Angeles court for arraignment Friday, accused of murdering her 80-year-old husband.

 

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A professional tennis referee accused of killing her 80-year-old husband has made her first court appearance in Los Angeles after being extradited from New York.

Lois Goodman's appearance Friday was brief. Her arraignment and a bail hearing were postponed to next Wednesday.

Police brought Goodman back to Los Angeles late Thursday from New York City, where she was to have served as a line judge for next week's U.S. Open, one of many high-profile tournaments she had worked since 1979.

Her husband, Alan, died on April 17 at the couple's condominium. Authorities briefly accepted her explanation that she returned home to find a broken coffee mug on the floor and her husband lying unresponsive in bed after most likely falling down the stairs.
