ATLANTA — A woman convicted of lying during the investigation of her husband's killing outside an Atlanta-area preschool was released from prison early Monday, Georgia officials say.

Sneiderman had served about 10 months in prison since she was sentenced in August to serve five years with credit for the year she had spent under house arrest while awaiting trial. Georgia Department of Corrections spokeswoman Gwendolyn Hogan tells The Associated Press that Andrea Sneiderman was released to family members after midnight.

Her husband, Rusty Sneiderman, was gunned down in November 2010 outside the preschool where he had just dropped off their son in Atlanta's northern suburbs. Andrea Sneiderman's boss, Hemy Neuman, was convicted in the killing but found to be mentally ill.

Prosecutors say Andrea Sneiderman lied to police and to a jury about a romantic relationship between her and Neuman. She has denied any such relationship.

A State Board of Pardons and Paroles document shows Sneiderman's parole runs through Aug. 21, 2017.
