District Attorney Robert James announced that the man suspected in the killing of Russell Sneiderman has been indicted by a grand jury for premeditated murder.

The announcement came Feb.8, a day after the DA’s office announced that a court hearing for Hemy Neuman had been cancelled.

Andrea Sneiderman, wife of Russell Sneiderman said she was “shocked” when her former boss had been charged in the killing.

Andrea Sneiderman and Neuman both worked at the Marietta campus of GE Energy.

Andrea Sneiderman said in a press release that she considered Neuman a “friend of the family” before the shooting, but had been told by the District Attorney’s Office that Neuman killed her husband.

At the press conference, James refused to discuss evidence in the case. He noted that one of the criminal indictments relates to Neuman possessing a firearm in the commission of a felony.

“We don’t try cases in the media,” he said.

Neuman was arrested by Dunwoody Police after Sneiderman was shot repeatedly after dropping off his 2-year old son at a Dunwoody day care.

The case will go to Georgia Superior Court.
