DECATUR, Ga.,None —

The defense and the prosecution in the Hemy Neuman murder trial have agreed on a jury.

Neuman has admitted to killing Rusty Sneiderman outside a Dunwoody preschool in November 2010. He pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.

Twelve jurors and four alternates were chosen after nearly four days of jury selection. The trial is expected to last as long as five to six weeks.

At the time of the shooting, Neuman was Sneiderman’s wife’s supervisor.

Prosecutors said Neuman and Andrea Sneiderman were having an affair.

Andrea Sneiderman was in the courtroom on Thursday, sitting in the same row as her husband’s parents.

Two motions are scheduled to be heard Thursday afternoon, including one to define insanity during the charge to the jury.

Court will not resume until Tuesday, when jurors are expected to hear opening statements.
