DECATUR, GA (AP) -

The lead detective in the 2010 murder of Rusty Sneiderman will return to the stand Thursday after testifying that the victim's widow hindered his investigation by concealing the affair she was having with her boss.

Andrea Sneiderman's former boss at GE Energy, Hemy Neuman, is now serving life in prison for the murder of Rusty Sneiderman outside the Dunwoody daycare center where he had just dropped off his son.

Sneiderman is on trial for allegedly lying to investigators after her husband's murder and lying in court during Neuman's 2012 trial.

Detective Andrew Thompson of the Dunwoody Police Department testified Tuesday for the prosecution.

"She did not tell me about any extramarital affair," said Thompson. "She concealed any kind of physical involvement with Hemy. She told me absolutely nothing to emphasize that there was an inappropriate relationship or extramarital affair with Hemy which would have guided my investigation directly at him."

Thompson testified that he had a lengthy conversation with Andrea Sneiderman in her home the day after her husband's murder. More than an hour into that conversation, he asked Sneiderman if anyone had tried to break up her family.

"My boss, Hemy," Sneiderman answered, according to a recording of the interview that was played in court. Sneiderman explained that Neuman had made a pass at her but that she deflected his advances.
