A veteran professional tennis umpire has been arrested on suspicion of killing her husband with a coffee cup.
Lois Ann Goodman, 70, from Los Angeles, was arrested in New York after it was alleged she killed 80-year-old Alan Frederick Goodman.
She is acused of hitting him with the coffee mug and then stabbing him with the broken pieces at their home.
He was pronounced dead at the scene in April, but the death was not considered to be murder until the beginning of this month.
Mrs Goodman was in New York at the time of her arrest, preparing to officiate matches in the forthcoming US Open tennis tournament.
She said she was not going to fight extradition back to California.
Her lawyer, Allen Farbman, was quoted as saying in the Wall Street Journal: "She wants to as quickly as possible go back to California and fight this case. She does not want to stay here and probably languish in jail."
Mrs Goodman began umpiring tennis matches in the 1970s and moved on to the US Open in 1987.
The matches she officiated at included players who were then at the top of their game - John McEnroe, Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova and Andre Agassi were among them.
