Opening statements are set to begin Monday, Aug. 8, in the re-trial of Hemy Neuman, the man accused of killing Russell “Rusty” Sneiderman in 2010 outside a Dunwoody daycare center, according to the DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office.

A jury was selected Friday, Aug. 5. Jurors for the new trial were selected from a pool of 250 candidates.

Neuman was found guilty of murder but mentally ill in an initial trial 2012. However, the Georgia Supreme Court reversed the verdict last year, forcing a retrial.

Russell Sneiderman’s wife, Andrea Sneiderman, previously was convicted of lying to investigators in the case. She was released from prison in 2014 and earlier this year lost a bid to have her conviction vacated. Prosecutors have alleged that Neuman was partly motivated by an affair with Andrea Sneiderman, which she denied.

Neuman is charged with malice murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Opening statements begin Monday at 9 a.m., in DeKalb County Superior Court Judge Gregory A. Adams’ Courtroom 5D.
