DECATUR, Ga. (AP) - On the eve of trial, prosecutors have dropped murder charges against a woman whose husband was gunned down outside a suburban Atlanta preschool.
DeKalb County District Attorney Robert James told Judge Gregory Adams on Friday that, after reviewing the evidence, he is no longer sure of Andrea Sneiderman's guilt. The judge accepted the motion and set jury selection for Monday on the remaining charges, which include lying under oath.
Prosecutors had initially accused Sneiderman of arranging for her former boss, Hemy Neuman, to kill Rusty Sneiderman outside a Dunwoody preschool in November 2010. Neuman is serving a life sentence after a jury found him guilty, but mentally ill.
Prosecutors say Neuman declined to testify in Sneiderman's trial.
Sneiderman has repeatedly denied any involvement in the shooting.
