• Dunwoody day care killer asks for new trial


    DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - A man found guilty but mentally ill in the shooting death of a father outside a Dunwoody day care 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.

    Channel 2's Mike Petchenik will be inside the courtroom for the hearing. Court documents obtained by Petchenik show Neuman's lawyers will argue that the court should have included media coverage in pretrial hearings and should not have include certain statements in the trial.

    Some of those statements were made by Andrea Sneiderman, Rusty's wife, who was later found guilty of perjury.

    Neuman worked with 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.

    Petchenik will have complete coverage of the hearing on Channel 2 Action News starting at 4 p.m. and get continuous updates on wsbtv.com and @wsbtv on Twitter.
