ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – A judge has denied a request by Andrea Sneiderman’s defense team to dismiss the case against her as her trial continues in an Atlanta suburb.

Rusty Sneiderman, was 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.

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

Defense lawyers were beginning their defense on Tuesday.

Prosecutors on Monday rested their case following just over a week of witness testimony and presentation of other evidence.

On Tuesday, Sneiderman’s lawyers argued that the state had failed to make its case, but the judge disagreed.
