Jurors want to again watch interviews of Ga. man who claims he was insane before shooting
DECATUR, Ga. (AP) ' Jurors are again going to watch interviews of a corporate engineer who claims he was insane when he killed a toddler's father outside a suburban Atlanta preschool.
Jurors requested to look at up to six hours of interviews that a mental health expert did with Hemy Neuman. The review begins at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Neuman's attorneys say he couldn't tell the difference between right and wrong when he killed Russell Sneiderman on November 2010. They say Sneiderman's wife Andrea took advantage of his deteriorating mental state to convince him to kill her husband.
Prosecutors contend that jealousy drove Neuman to commit the crime, not a "contrived" mental illness.
The 49-year-old Neuman could face life in prison without parole if convicted.
