Closing arguments begin in murder trial of man accused of shooting outside Ga. preschool
DECATUR, Ga. (AP) ' Prosecutors and defense attorneys hope to make lasting final impressions on jurors who could soon deliberate the fate of a man who claims he was insane when he gunned down a toddler's father outside a suburban Atlanta day care center.
The closing arguments in the murder trial of Hemy Neuman began Tuesday morning at the DeKalb County Courthouse.
Neuman's defense team says he couldn't tell the difference between right and wrong when he shot Russell Sneiderman in November 2010 outside the preschool in Dunwoody.
But prosecutors say he showed no signs of mental distress in the weeks leading up to it.
Neuman faces life in prison if he's convicted of the shooting, or becoming a ward of the state if the jury finds him not guilty by reason of insanity.
