HEMY NEUMAN TRIAL | Trial postponed on Day 9

DECATUR, Ga. (WXIA) -- On the ninth day of the Hemy Neuman murder trial, Judge Gregory Adams called for a postponement, citing an unrelated legal matter as his reason.

Neuman's trial will resume at 9 a.m. Monday.

The prosecution had been preparing to cross-examine Dr. Adriana Flores, a forensic psychologist who testified a day earlier that she believed Neuman to be "psychotic" and "delusional."

Last Friday morning, Judge Adams released victim Rusty Sneiderman's widow from the courtroom.

He sequestered Andrea Sneiderman, saying that she had direct contact with witness Shayna Citron in the case, even after being told not to.

HEMY NEUMAN TRIAL | Psychologist says imagined demons drove Neuman to kill Rusty Sneiderman

DECATUR, Ga. (WXIA) -- The relationship between Dunwoody housewife Andrea Sneiderman and the man accused of murdering her husband continued to dominate courtroom testimony on Thursday.

Hemy Neuman's defense is trying to convince a DeKalb County jury that he was insane and did not know it was wrong to gun down Rusty Sneiderman outside a Dunwoody daycare in November of 2010.

Defense Psychologist Dr. Adriana Flores told the jury she believes Neuman has bipolar disorder, is manic, psychotic and delusional.

Flores said Neuman told her demons convinced him to kill Rusty Sneiderman so he could take over his life, his children and his wife.

"He believed that he was the father of her children and that his children were in danger and that he was going to protect them by killing Mr. Sneiderman," Flores testified.

DECATUR, Ga. (WXIA) -- Let's say you have a good year where you earn more than you expected. You think that's going to happen for the next several years, so you buy yourself a beach house.

Then your salary drops -- somehow you've got to keep paying for that beach house.

The Dekalb County school system is facing a similar scenario, facing a $41-million budget shortfall after spending money they didn't have.

School board members who learned of the shortage at a called meeting Wednesday afternoon were shocked.

"I'm livid," said board member Nancy Jester. "I'm furious. I feel like I've had sand thrown in my eyes. We haven't been able to see the real facts even though we thought we had them."

The shortfall was discovered almost by accident.
