Lois Ann Goodman, a 70-year-old professional tennis referee, was recently suspected of killing her 80-year-old husband by beating him to death. Her lawyer was to request her release at a court appearance on Wednesday.
Goodman's attorney, Alison Triessl, argued that she was harmless and does not pose a threat to anyone making the $1 million bail unnecessary.
Just before Goodman was set to referee at the US Open last week, she was arrested and charged with the murder of her husband back in April. She maintains that she was not responsible for his death and he probably fell down the stairs when she was not home.
Her attorney could also argue that Goodman is not able to pull off such a horrific crime due to her physical state. Triessl pointed out Goodman's knee and shoulder replacements which would have made her unable to commit the act.
Monday's filing was filled with letters from family, friends and colleagues who had nothing but good to say about Goodman and her nature stating that she has never been violent.
Triessl requested that either the $1 million bail be reduced to $100,000 or that electronic monitoring be granted so Goodman could be released.
No filings from the prosecutor has been submitted as of yet but district attorney's spokeswoman, Sandi Gibbons, said that the motion filed by Goodman's attorney will be argued in court.
