With all Murder Charges against the woman dropped today, it seems Sneiderman will only be on the hook for charges of perjury and obstruction of justice in the murder of her husband, Rusty. He was gunned down in front of his children's daycare by the female Sneiderman's boss, successful engineer Hemy Newman. Neuman is currently serving life in prison. http://www.ajc.com/news/news/local/prosecutors-planning-to-drop-murder-charges-agains/nY2xm/ It took almost two years, and four months after her boss' conviction, but last August, Ms. Sneiderman was indicted on charges of malice murder, criminal attempt to commit murder, and racketeering. Prosecutors believed Neuman and Sneiderman were having an affair, and Sneiderman convinced her boss to kill her husband, which allowed her to collect $2 million in insurance policies as well as control of $960,000 that the two shared in joint bank accounts. Said Sneiderman, through her lawyer: However, phone records showed she and Neuman exchanged three phone calls the evening before Neuman killed her husband, and that she called him six more times on the way to the hospital. She testified that she didn't know her husband had been shot until she reached the hospital about an hour after the shooting, though her father-in-law and a close friend both testified she told them he had been shot during calls made on her way to the hospital. The family of her husband has been vigorous in their pursuit of an indictment against Sneiderman. Said Rusty's brother, Steve: The indictment, which was dropped against her, alledged that she and Neuman were having an affair, and she put him up to killing her husband. Ms. Sneiderman has time and again denied these allegations, both of the affair and getting Neuman to kill her husband. What I find hard to believe is that a man would kill her husband because she rejected his advances. Generally, men whose advances are rejected who are sociopaths, or, in Ms. Sneiderman's words, 'Master Manipulators', kill the object of their spurned advances, not the spouse of. Yes, there are some who kill the husband and present him as a sort of 'trophy' to the object of their affection, but that is generally done solely when the two have already had an affair, and she then spurned his advances. Sneiderman first had said that she learned of her husband's shooting at the hospital, although the indictment against her attested that she had informed both her father-in-law and a close friend that he had been shot while she was on her wayto the hospital. Said Prosecutor Robert James: However, with the case being believed to be strongly circumstancial, the charges against her were dropped. There was no direct evidence that Sneiderman was involved, only second-hand testimony from witnesses. Said prominent criminal defense attorney Steve Sadow regarding the decision: Even without concrete evidence, should the charges against Sneiderman have been taken to trial, at least? Do you believe she conspired to kill her husband? Why or why not? Any other thoughts on this story are welcome and encouraged.
