DECATUR, Georgia — A lawyer for Hemy Neuman says his client should get a new trial because a key prosecution witness, Andrea Sneiderman, has been convicted of lying during his trial.
A prosecutor argued Neuman shouldn't get a new trial because Sneiderman's testimony was challenged during Neuman's trial and the jury could easily have reached the same verdict without her testimony.
Judge Gregory Adams said he would issue a decision later.
Neuman was found guilty but mentally ill in the November 2010 shooting death of Sneiderman's husband, Rusty Sneiderman, outside a suburban Atlanta preschool.
Neuman was Andrea Sneiderman's supervisor at work. Prosecutors and Neuman's attorneys have said the two were romantically involved, allegations she has denied.
A jury in August found Andrea Sneiderman guilty of lying to investigators and during Neuman's trial.
