Day care murder trial postponed for day

Updated:

DECATUR, Ga.,None - Defense testimony in the Dunwoody day care murder trial will have to wait until Monday morning.

Judge Gregory Adams canceled court Friday due to an unrelated matter. No further explanation was given.

General Electric supervisor Hemy Neuman is accused of gunning down his co-worker’s husband, Rusty Sneiderman. Sneiderman was killed after dropping off his son at a Dunwoody day care in November 2010.

Neuman has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. This week, jurors heard from three doctors for the defense. Two of them did initial evaluations of Neuman, and another did in-depth testing.



The latter, a forensic psychologist, told the jury Neuman was bipolar and delusional and should not be held responsible for the crime. Neuman said angels and demons resembling Barry White and Olivia Newton John told him to kill Sneiderman, and he believed the Sneiderman children were his own.

“He already had this thought that the children were his and he was going to have this relationship forever and ever after with her. It's not all in his head, because she was in fact having sex with him. She was giving him some cues that were very much real," Dr. Adriana Flores said.

Lawyers on both sides believe Neuman was having an affair with Sneiderman’s wife, Andrea, but she has denied it. She was barred from the courthouse last week after prosecutors said she had inappropriate contact with witnesses.
