LOS ANGELES (AP) - A professional tennis referee from Los Angeles has been arrested in New York City on a felony warrant charging her with murdering her elderly husband in April.
The district attorney's office said Tuesday that 70-year-old Lois Ann Goodman was taken into custody as she prepared to work as a referee at the U.S. Open tennis tournament.
She was charged with murdering her 80-year-old husband, Alan Goodman, in their Woodland Hills home. Prosecutors allege she bludgeoned him to death with a coffee mug on April 17.
Goodman is in custody in New York awaiting extradition proceedings to return her to Los Angeles. Prosecutors said they would ask that her bail be set at $1 million. A warrant for her arrest was issued on Aug. 14.
