Murder charges against tennis umpire Lois Goodman have been dropped.

The murder charges against a tennis umpire accused of killing her husband have been dropped.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney Office released a statement Friday saying that the case has been dismissed against Lois Goodman after they "received additional information."

Goodman, a professional tennis referee, was arrested in August for allegedly killing her husband Alan Goodman with a coffee mug, reports CBS 2.

Police originally believed Alan Goodman died after falling down the stairs. However, his death was later ruled a homicide after a mortuary found mysterious injuries on the body.
