Hemy Neuman retrial set for August 2016


DECATUR, Ga. -- Hemy Neuman will be back on trial for murder next summer. 

During a status hearing Wednesday, a DeKalb County judge set aside a month for Hemy Neuman's retrial. Neuman was found guilty but mentally ill of gunning down Rusty Sneiderman outside a Dunwoody daycare in 2010. At the time of the murder, he was the boss of Sneiderman's wife Andrea. The two were allegedly having an affair, but that's something she's always denied. 

In June, the Supreme Court of Georgia reversed his earlier sentence. The ruling stated the court erred by allowing notes and records of two mental health experts who examined Neuman before his trial to be used as evidence against him. 

"Because the trial court erred in admitting evidence, which was protected by the attorney-client privilege, we now reverse," the opinion said. 

Public defenders Letitia Delan and Duana Sanson will be representing the Neuman in his retrial. 

Deputy Chief Assistant District Attorney Anna Cross was a lead prosecutor in that earlier case and will be prosecuting the case this time around.
