Jurors Resume Deliberations In Day Care Murder
DUNWOODY (AP/WAOK) – Jurors are requesting to review more evidence as they deliberate the case of an engineer who claims he was insane when he killed a toddler’s father outside a suburbapreschool.
Jurors on Wednesday requested to review up to six hours of videotapes of an interview with Hemy Neuman. The review is set to begin at 1:30 p.m.
Neuman’s attorneys say he couldn’t tell the difference between right and wrong when he killed Russell Sneiderman on November 2010 outside a Dunwoodypreschool. They say Sneiderman’s wife Andrea took advantage of his deteriorating mental state to convince him to kill her husband.
Prosecutors contend that jealousy drove Neuman to commit the crime, not a “contrived” mental illness.
The 49-year-old could face life in prison without parole if convicted.
