DECATUR, Ga. - The Dunwoody woman accused of lying to police about her husband's killer broke into tears during some of the testimony Tuesday.

One key witness took the stand Tuesday, and another is expected to testify Wednesday.

"I think she's holding up well," friend Steffi Miller said about Andrea Sneiderman as she was leaving court Tuesday.

Miller reflected on seeing her friend, Sneiderman, cry as lawyers played her previous testimony about the day her husband was murdered.

"I have seen nothing but emotion from her, so this is not a surprise to me," Miller told Channel 2's Tony Thomas.

Prosecutors continue to try and prove Sneiderman had an affair with Hemy Neuman, then tried to cover up his involvement in her husband's 2010 murder.

At the crux of the case is when Sneiderman told her father-in-law that his son had been shot. Don Sneiderman said Andrea called him as she rushed to the scene.

"She was very excited and said Rusty had been shot. She was so, so sorry," Don Sneiderman testified.

But in previous testimony played in court, Andrea Sneiderman insisted she didn't know details until much later.

"I didn't know what happened to Rusty until I got to the emergency room," said Andrea Sneiderman as testimony from Hemy Neuman's trial was played in court Tuesday.

"There are some calls you never forget and that was one of them," Don Sneiderman said.

Defense lawyer Tom Clegg tried to push the retired accountant about his memory.

A few minutes later, court was adjourned. Don Sneiderman will likely return to the stand Wednesday morning.

"I think it's key because I don't think people expect a father-in-law to turn on a daughter-in-law, and I wouldn't have expected it myself," Miller said.

Wednesday could be a big day in the trial. Not only will Don Sneiderman likely be back on the stand, but the lawyer for Andrea's former best friend said Shana Citron will be called to testify as well.

Citron was the recipient of that now infamous in-court kiss and hug from Sneiderman in the Neuman trial.
