Sneiderman to be re-arraigned in husband's death

By The Associated Press
ATLANTA (AP) A woman accused of arranging for her husband to be killed outside a suburban Atlanta preschool is set to be arraigned for a third time Tuesday.

Andrea Sneiderman is scheduled to appear in DeKalb County Superior Court. Sneiderman is accused of arranging for her former boss, Hemy Neuman, to kill her husband, Rusty Sneiderman, outside a Dunwoody preschool in November 2010.

Andrea Sneiderman's trial is set to begin July 29, about a year after her arrest. She has been living under house arrest at her parents' home in suburban Atlanta since she was released on bond a few weeks after her arrest.

Neuman was arrested about six weeks after the killing and was charged with murder. A jury last year found him guilty but mentally ill.

Andrea Sneiderman has consistently denied any involvement in the killing of her husband and has pleaded not guilty to the charges against her at previous arraignments.

She was arrested in August, accused of helping orchestrate her husband's death. She faces charges of felony murder and 15 other counts.

Sneiderman was arraigned a first time on an eight-count indictment; her second arraignment came after charges were added. Her third comes after prosecutors clarified some of the charges.

Prosecutors say Sneiderman lied to investigators on numerous occasions and didn't always tell the truth when she was testifying during Neuman's trial. They say she hid a romantic relationship between herself and Neuman, destroyed evidence of Neuman's guilt and lied when she found out her husband had been shot.

Sneiderman has repeatedly denied being romantically involved with Neuman.

With many twists and turns, as well as tangential lawsuits filed by various parties, the case has drawn an enormous amount of attention.
