ID=22034869

Neuman is the former GE executive who shot and killed Rusty Sneiderman outside a Dunwoody daycare in November 2010.

The prosecution made Sniederman's widow Andrea and her testimony a huge part of their case against Neuman, saying the two were having an affair.

That was something even Neuman's lawyers conceded to -- saying she drove Neuman to a point that he couldn't distinguish right from wrong.
