Andrea Sneiderman, pleaded not guilty Oct. 8 to charges that said she conspired with her former boss to murder her husband Rusty Sneiderman in 2010.
Sneiderman was arrested Aug. 2 and charged with criminal attempt to commit murder, malice murder, insurance fraud, two counts of making a false statement and of perjury, and a violation of the Georgia Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.
Hemy Neuman, Sneiderman’s former boss at General Electric, was charged with shooting Sneiderman’s husband in front of a Dunwoody day care center. He was later tried and convicted of the charges and is serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole.
According to the indictment, prosecutors allege Sneiderman was having an affair with Neuman and conspired with him to murder her husband and collect his approximately $2.2 million in assets. Sneiderman denies the affair took place.
Sneiderman was released on $500,000 bond and is currently living at her parents’ house under house arrest. If convicted, Sneiderman could face life in prison.
Officials from the DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office said the trial is expected to last as long as Neuman’s did, which was approximately a month. The trial is expected to start in spring of 2013.
