ATLANTA — A DeKalb County jury on Thursday found Hemy Neuman guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, but mentally ill in the 2010 shooting death of a man outside a Dunwoody day care, WSB-TV and other media outlets reported.
A judge sentenced Neuman, 49, who pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity in the slaying, to life in prison, The Dunwoody Crier reported.
Neuman was convicted 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.
Neuman, supervised Sneiderman’s wife, Andrea, at GE, according to an Associated Press account of the trial and 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.
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. Jurors deliberated for about eight hours before convicting Neuman, according to published reports.
Andrea Sneiderman “is grateful for and relieved by the jury’s guilty verdict and the sentence. Nothing can bring back her husband, but it is reassuring to her that, after all of the noise and distractions surrounding this case, some measure of justice has been done for Rusty,” Jennifer Little, co-counsel for Andrea Sneiderman, said in a statement.
