Update: Professional Tennis Ref Accused of Murdering her 80-year-old Husband

The U.S. Open tennis referee, Lois Goodman, was accused beating her husband to death with a mug and arrested on August 21st. She recently underwent a polygraph test performed by a former FBI specialist who was involved in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

Goodman, 70, says that the test done by FBI polygraph chief Jack Trimarco confirms her innocence according her lawyer Robert Sheahen.

She was tested over the course of several days last week with the results confirmed by a third party specialist.

'The prosecution's case is riddled with doubt, and this puts it beyond reasonable doubt,' Sheahen said. 'They don't have a case.'

Council for Goodman plan to move forward with a statement regarding the results of the polygraph on Tuesday afternoon.

Goodman has already plead not guilty to the charge of murdering her husband while the prosecution accuses her of using the coffee mug as an 'improvised knife' then left to get a manicure.

Goodman maintains that her husband's death was due to an accidental fall down the stairs on April 17th.

Initially, Goodman's story was believable; however an autopsy was conducted as revealed as many as 'nine to 10' head injuries.
