Lois Goodman, 70, has worked in the game for decades, mixing with some of the biggest stars in tennis, such as John McEnroe, Martina Navratilova, Roger Federer and the Williams Sisters.
She was in New York for next week's US Open where she was to serve as a line judge when police carried out the arrest on a warrant from her home town of Los Angeles.
Prosecutors said she tried to make the death, in April, look like an accident claiming her husband Alan had fallen down stairs.
