Man gets life without parole in day care killing retrial


DECATUR, Ga. (AP) -- A man convicted of killing another man outside a suburban Atlanta preschool was sentenced at retrial to life in prison without parole.

Marcus Garner of the DeKalb County Prosecutor's Office says Hemy Neuman was convicted Tuesday of malice murder and possession of a firearm while committing a felony. Neuman also was sentenced five years, to run consecutively, on the gun charge.

Prosecutors said Neuman killed Russell "Rusty" Sneiderman in November 2010 so he could be with Sneiderman's wife Andrea, with whom he was having an affair.

Andrea Sneiderman repeatedly denied the claims. Another jury later convicted Sneiderman of perjury and she spent time in prison before being released.

Neuman was previously found guilty but mentally ill in Rusty Sneiderman's death, but the Georgia Supreme Court reversed that conviction, citing a violation of attorney-client privilege.
