Georgia's Supreme Court to hear Neuman appeal Tuesday

ATLANTA (WXIA) – On Tuesday, the Georgia Supreme Court will consider whether convicted killer Hemy Neuman should get a new trial.


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.

A jury found Neuman guilty but mentally ill and sentenced him to life without the possibility of parole.

Now, fast forward to the trial of Andrea Sneiderman where she was found guilty of perjury.

The defense will say that since she lied on the stand, and that the case against Neuman was so heavily based on her testimony, the whole trial and verdict should be thrown out.
