ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – A jury has found Andrea Sneiderman guilty of nine counts in her trial on charges including false statements and perjury.

Jurors got the case after closing arguments Thursday and deliberated all day Friday before leaving without a verdict. They returned to deliberate some more Monday.

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

Prosecutors accused Sneiderman of lying to police investigating her husband’s death and lying under oath during Neuman’s trial. The 13-count indictment included charges of making false statements, hindering an investigation and perjury.

Sneiderman’s defense said prosecutors had a weak case but were desperate to convict Sneiderman of something.
