Tennis umpire accused of killing husband out on bail
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Still dressed in her umpire uniform, professional tennis official and accused killer Lois Goodman walked out of the county jail Sunday after being released on bail.
The 70 year old had been behind bars since late August when she was arrested in New York City just as she was about to serve as a line judge in a U.S. Open match. She was extradited back to Los Angeles to face charges she beat her husband, 80-year-old Alan Goodman, to death with a coffee mug last April in their Woodland Hills condominium.
Goodman reported her husband's death, telling police she had come home from a tennis match and discovered her husband had fallen down the stairs.
However, investigators said blood found throughout the home wasn't consistent with a fall and neither were his stab wounds.
This past week, she pleaded not guilty. Goodman's attorney's said she's not only innocent of the crime, but physically incapable of the violence.
Goodman is required to wear an electronic monitor while she is out on bail. Her next court appearance is set for Oct. 3.
