Hemy Neuman, the man found guilty of killing Rusty Sneiderman as he dropped off his son at a Dunwoody daycare center, appeared in court Tuesday, March 4, to ask for a new trial.

According to a report from our media affiliate CBS46,  Neuman’s attorneys listed 23 reasons he should be granted a new trial. Among them, lawyers cite the fact that Rusty Sneiderman’s wife, Andrea Sneiderman, was convicted of perjury for lying during Neuman’s trial. Neuman was reportedly having an affair with Andrea Sneiderman. She has denied the affair or involvement in her husband’s murder.

“Every time she opened her mouth, she told a lie,” Neuman’s attorney, Scott Key, told the court.

In 2012, a jury found Neuman guilty but mentally ill and he was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

The judge in the case said he would rule on the motion for a new trial at a later date.
