Prosecution rests in Sneiderman perjury trial


Associated Press

DECATUR — The prosecution has rested its case against Andrea Sneiderman.

The prosecution wrapped up Monday. The defense is expected to begin its case Tuesday.

Rusty Sneiderman was fatally shot in November 2010 outside a suburban Atlanta preschool. Andrea Sneiderman’s former boss Hemy Neuman was convicted in the killing in March 2012, but was found mentally ill.    

An FBI expert testified Monday that phone calls and text messages between Andrea Sneiderman and Neuman the day of the killing were erased from her phone.

Prosecutors say Sneiderman lied to police investigating her husband’s death and lied under oath during Neuman’s trial last year. She faces charges of making false statements, hindering an investigation and perjury.    

Prosecutors have alleged Andrea Sneiderman was having an affair with Neuman. She has denied any romantic relationship.
