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