LOS ANGELES (AP) - Lawyers for a professional tennis referee charged in her husband's death say she has passed a lie detector test in which she said she did not kill him with a coffee cup.
The attorneys for Lois Ann Goodman have submitted the results to the district attorney's office by email suggesting that prosecutors reevaluate the case and consider dismissing charges against the 70-year-old woman.
The attorneys told The Associated Press on Monday that police wanted Goodman to take a polygraph test when she was first under investigation, but she refused on advice of her former counsel.
They say she has fulfilled that request. The test was administered by a well-known FBI-trained polygrapher.
A district attorney's spokeswoman says the office will not comment until the material is filed to court.
