Los Angeles, CA —The murder charges were dropped against the U.S. Open tennis judge accused of killing her husband. Lois Ann Goodman, 70, was arrested in Manhattan on Aug. 21, and has been under house arrest ever since. Prosecutors claimed that Goodman had used a coffee mug as an “improvised knife” and bludgeoned her husband, Alan Goodman, with it. Goodman said that her husband died when he fell down the stairs in a freak accident. Goodman took a polygraph test given by a former FBI polygraph pro named Jack Trimarco and passed it. Goodman’s lawyer, Robert Sheahen, said, “There is no way on God’s green earth that Lois Goodman could have committed this crime. She is right handed. The injuries were on the wrong side of the head for a right-handed person.” The prosecutors dismissed the case after receiving new information.
