Widow Insists she did not have Affair with the Man Who Killed her Husband

At times indignant, Andrea Sneiderman said Hemy Neuman manipulated her into thinking they were friends.

Andrea Sneiderman returned to witness stand Wednesday morning and continued to insist that she and the man who killed her husband never had an affair.

Sneiderman, the widow of Russell 'Rusty' Sneiderman, spent several hours on Tuesday and Wednesday detailing her relationship with her former boss, Hemy Neuman, who has admitted to killing Rusty Sneiderman.

Testimony and emails showed that Neuman, who was Andrea Sneiderman's supervisor at GE, had romantic feelings for her and proposed marriage to her at least once. She testified that they never did more than hold hands. She also said she never heard him talk or act in a way that made her think he had delusions or was mentally ill.

The prosecution called witnesses that cast doubt on her claim that she and her boss had only been friends.

A clerk from a Hampton Inn in Colorado, where Sneiderman and Neuman stayed on a business related trip, testified that Sneiderman requested a change from two rooms, with one guest to a room, to a room with one bed for two guests. A bartender from Greensville, SC, testified that she saw the pair dancing together at a club, groping each other and kissing, and looking like a happy couple.

Neuman has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity in the killing of Rusty Sneiderman, who was gunned down in Nov. 2010 after dropping of his child at a Dunwoody daycare center. Defense lawyers have said he had delusions and thought angels and demons spoke to him.

Prosecutors are depicting Neuman as a man who wanted to get rid of a romantic rival, and who knew right from wrong.

I would not be surprised that if Hemy is found guilty of murder (not insanity) that the prosecutors don't offer him some type of deal to reduce his sentence to testify against Andrea.

I agree Melesia, I believe that is exactly what will happen. The DA is gonna want to put Andrea away for this too. I wish they had court on the weekend. Come on 9:00 can't wait for the truth to come out. I wish I was on that jury.

Regarding little media coverage.... Is it possible it's because Hemy worked for GE?

And.....Who in the world who is athe victim's spouse hangs around the court hassling people called to testify? Where is her attorney during all these antics? Did he know she would potentially give conflicting statements? I am betting they have the goods on her and he day is coming. Sure appears she has forgotten the victim and her own kids. An absolutely pathetic person...
