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.

Some of the scheduled projects include:

Ga. Supreme Court to hear appeal from Hemy Neuman

Ga. Supreme Court to hear appeal from Hemy Neuman

DUNWOODY, Ga. – The Georgia Supreme Court will hear an appeal from Hemy Neuman.

Neuman is serving a life sentence after being found guilty but insane in the Nov. 2010 shooting death of Rusty Sneiderman outside of a Dunwoody daycare.

During the trial, Neuman's attorneys contended that his affair with Sneiderman's wife, Andrea, drove him to madness. Neuman was Andrea Sneiderman's boss at GE Energy.

In a separate trial, Andrea Sneiderman was convicted of perjury and sentenced to five years in prison. She was released in June 2014 after serving 22 months. She is serving out the remainder of her sentence under paroled supervision.
