U.S. Open tennis umpire Lois Goodman is accused of fatally bludgeoning her 80-year-old husband in their home with a coffee mug. A hearing today in Los Angeles will determine if there is enough evidence to proceed to trial.
The 70-year-old line judge was arrested in August in New York while preparing for the U.S. Open tournament and charged with the killing, which occurred in California in April.
Alan Goodman was beaten with a coffee mug then stabbed to death with its broken shards.
His wife's lawyer and supporters dispute the charges on a Facebook page dedicated to her defense.
Then what happened?
Gosh. She really must have been upset. To even stab him with the broken pieces of the cup.
well, everybody knows umpires are no good to the opposition with home calls...i think she took the game to another new level and shard him for the last words uttered on his way out...dang i always felt sorry for the spouses of butchers and doctors it seems we have tah hold a leary eye for umpires, now....
You have to be kidding.... Said in a John Mc Enore voice!
"John NEVER has two cups at home...."
