AYLANTA (AP/WAOK) – Attorneys for a woman accused of lying to police investigating her husband’s shooting death have filed a motion for a new trial.

Andrea Sneiderman was sentenced to five years in prison for lying to investigators about an affair with her former boss, Hemy Neuman, who was convicted of killing Sneiderman’s husband. Neuman was also deemed mentally ill.

Officials say Sneiderman’s attorney Brian Steel filed a motion in Fulton County Superior Court saying the verdict against his client was contrary to evidence that was presented. Sneiderman was convicted of perjury and giving false statements.

Attorneys for Hemy Neuman say they also plan to file a motion for a new trial. They argue that Neuman deserves a new trial since perjured testimony from Sneiderman was used to convict him.
