Tennis referee gives DNA sample

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A nationally known professional tennis referee charged with the coffee-cup killing of her husband gave police a DNA sample Wednesday after dropping her opposition to the procedure.

Lois Ann Goodman, 70, who is charged with beating her husband to death with the cup last April, was accompanied by about 25 supporters, including friends and relatives, when she appeared briefly in court.

A judge scheduled Goodman’s next hearing for Nov. 8.
