UNDATED (CNN) - U.S. Open tennis umpire Lois Goodman could find out if she will go on trial for murder.
Goodman is accused of fatally bludgeoning her 80-year-old husband in their home with a coffee mug. A hearing Thursday in Los Angeles will determine if there is enough evidence to go to trial.
The 70-year-old line judge was arrested in August in New York while preparing for the U.S. Open tournament.
The death, which happened in California in April, was gruesome. Alan Goodman was beaten with a coffee mug then stabbed to death with its broken shards.
His wife's lawyer and supporters dispute the charges on a Facebook page dedicated to her defense. Today's hearing is set for 11:30 a.m.
