DECATUR, Ga. (AP) — A judge has denied a request for a new trial from a man found guilty but mentally ill in a fatal shooting outside a suburban Atlanta preschool.
DeKalb County Superior Court Judge Gregory Adams issued an order Monday denying a new trial for Hemy Neuman.
Neuman was found guilty but mentally ill in March 2012 in the November 2010 shooting death Rusty Sneiderman outside a suburban Atlanta preschool. Neuman worked with Sneiderman’s wife, Andrea, and was her supervisor.
Neuman’s lawyers had argued the court had ruled incorrectly in several instances during their client’s trial and that the evidence presented at trial didn’t support his conviction. They also argued that he was entitled to a new trial because Andrea Sneiderman, a key prosecution witness, had since been found guilty of perjury.
