Man seeks new trial in shooting outside preschool

Posted: Updated:
DECATUR, Ga. (AP) -

A man who was found guilty but mentally ill in the shooting death of another man outside a suburban Atlanta preschool is asking for a new trial.

A judge is set to hear arguments Tuesday on Hemy Neuman's motion for a new trial. Neuman was sentenced in March 2012 to life in prison without parole in the November 2010 death of Rusty Sneiderman.

Neuman worked with Sneiderman's wife, Andrea Sneiderman, and was her supervisor. Prosecutors and Neuman's attorneys said during his trial that he and Andrea Sneiderman were having an affair, allegations she has denied.

A jury in August found Andrea Sneiderman guilty of lying to investigators and during Neuman's trial.

Neuman's lawyers say he's entitled to a new trial because Andrea Sneiderman's perjured testimony was used to convict him.
