Attorneys for U.S. Open tennis umpire Lois Goodman, charged with killing her husband with a broken coffee cup, failed Wednesday in a bid to stop police from getting a sample of her DNA.
Goodman is charged with bludgeoning her 80-year-old husband, Alan Goodman, with the broken coffee mug April 17, then leaving him to die while she played tennis and got a manicure. She is currently free on $500,000 bail and under electronic monitoring.
Prosecutors are seeking a sample of Lois Goodman's DNA to compare with blood found in the home and on the coffee cup.
But defense attorneys paint a picture of a bungled police investigation with a tainted crime scene. Attorneys Robert Sheahan, Alison Triessl and Kelly S. Gerner argue that prosecutors cannot even show probable cause to get the umpire's DNA -- let alone prove her husband was slain.
