Jury to decide Neuman’s fate

ATLANTA — The fate of Hemy Neuman rests with a DeKalb County jury, according to news reports.

Neuman is charged with murder in the Nov. 18, 2010, shooting death of 36-year-old Russell “Rusty” Sneiderman. Investigators say Sneiderman was shot and killed after dropping off his then 2-year-old son at a Dunwoody daycare.

According to police, Sneiderman was getting into his car to leave the daycare when an armed man approached him and opened fire. The suspect then fled in a silver minivan without a license plate.

Neuman, who supervised Sneiderman’s wife at GE, according to an Associated Press account of the trial, was arrested in early January 2011. Despite suggestions from prosecutors and defense attorneys, Sniderman’s wife, Andrea, during testimony denied having an affair with Neuman, according to The Associated Press account.

Neuman, 49, has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.

The trial featured mental health experts testifying on behalf of both of prosecutors and the defense about whether Neuman was insane at the time of the shooting, WSB-AM reported.
