Andrea Sneiderman could be released from prison on parole in June, the state Board of Pardons and Paroles has determined.

The board on April 22 set a tentative parole release month for Sneiderman, a spokesman for the board said. Her case will be considered again before her parole can be granted, the spokesman said.

Sneiderman’s husband, Rusty, was shot and died in Dunwoody in 2010. After Andrea Sneiderman’s August 2013 conviction on charges of lying about the death of her husband, she was sentenced to five years in prison, less a year she already had served.

Hemy Neuman was found guilty but mentally ill in 2012 in Rusty Sneiderman’s death. Andrea Sneiderman and Neuman, her boss, had been having an affair prior to the slaying, lawyers said during their trials. Neuman is serving life in prison.
