Killer gets life with­out pa­role; vic­tim’s wife now a sus­pect

The Washington Times Daily - - Nation -

DE­CATUR | A cor­po­rate en­gi­neer who fawned over a fe­male sub­or­di­nate was found guilty but men­tally ill Thurs­day of fa­tally shoot­ing the woman’s hus­band in an am­bush out­side a sub­ur­ban At­lanta preschool.

Af­ter a judge sen­tenced Hemy Neu­man to life in prison with­out pa­role for killing Rus­sell Snei­der­man, prose­cu­tors shifted their at­ten­tion to the vic­tim’s wife.

They have sug­gested An­drea Snei­der­man was a “co-con­spir­a­tor” in the slay­ing, goad­ing a love-struck Neu­man into killing her hus­band, per­haps for a $2 mil­lion life in­sur­ance pol­icy.

Prose­cu­tors and de­fense at­tor­neys for Neu­man said he was hav­ing an af­fair with Mrs. Snei­der­man, though she re­peat­edly de­nied those ac­cu­sa­tions and any in­volve­ment in the killing. When pressed about whether charges were im­mi­nent, Dekalb County Dis­trict At­tor­ney Robert James said: “Stay tuned.”
