A reworked series of indictments was issued on Tuesday afternoon in the murder trial of Andrea Sneiderman.
The new 16-count indictment drops language from the original document, according to the AJC, including allegations that Sneiderman and Hemy Neuman “conspired together to murder Rusty Sneiderman so that they could enjoy a life together, eliminate Neuman’s debt problems and fully benefit from the assets the Sneidermans had acquired as well as the proceeds of Rusty Sneiderman’s life insurance policies.”
The revised indictment also no longer contains omits any reference to financial motives, referring to the defendant as a “party to the crime.” Georgia law defines that in part as intentionally advising, encouraging, hiring, counseling or procuring another to commit a crime.
Sneiderman has denied any involvement in her husband’s death and says she was never romantically involved with Neuman, her former GE supervisor.
Neuman was convicted and sentenced to life in prison in March for the fatal shooting of Rusty Sneiderman outside a Dunwoody daycare facility in November 2010.
In the revised series of indictments, Sneiderman faces seven counts of perjury, four counts of giving false statements and one count each of concealing material facts and hindering the apprehension of a criminal. One count of felony murder was added, along with a count of aggravated assault, while charges of attempted murder, insurance fraud and racketeering were dropped from the indictment handed down in August.
Five counts of perjury and two counts of false statements were added in the new indictment.
Sneiderman is due in DeKalb County Superior Court on Thursday for a hearing in which a trial date may be set.
