Tennis referee headed to LA to face murder case
NEW YORK (AP) – A tennis referee accused of beating her 80-year-old husband to death with a coffee mug is headed to Los Angeles to face the murder charge after being arrested in New York.
The 70-year-old Goodman agreed after her arrest Tuesday not to fight extradition to California. Lawyer Guy Oksenhendler says she’s “anxious to defend herself” in California.
She’s being flown to Los Angeles on Thursday and is expected to be arraigned there Monday.
Alan Goodman died April 17 at the couple’s condominium. His wife told police he apparently had an accident while she was refereeing a tennis match.
