Tennis umpire murder case thrown out

LOS ANGELES. -- Prosecutors have dropped the murder case against a tennis umpire.

Lois Goodman was accused of killing her 80 year-old husband with a coffee mug last April. Now they say there is insufficient evidence against the 70 year-old woman.

She was arrested in New York this past August just as she was about serve as a line judge in the US Open.

Goodman maintained her innocence and even passed a polygraph test.

The judge dismissed the case without prejudice, which means it could be brought back.
