Andrea Sneiderman’s defense team is claiming that prosecutors are publicizing a third man that’s involved with her to provoke Hemy Neuman into testifying against her, according to a report by 11 Alive.
The filing came this week, after Judge Gregory Adams ruled that Sneiderman and Joseph Dell could no longer have contact with one another because Dell would be a witness in the case.
Prosecutors allege Dell was the live-in boyfriend of Sneiderman.
Hemy Neuman, Sneiderman’s former boss at GE Energy, was convicted in a March trial as the shooter of Rusty Sneiderman, Andrea Sniederman’s late husband, after he dropped off his child at Dunwoody day care.
The prosecutions theory of what led to the killing has shifted and the focus has moved from Neuman to Dell. The theory when she was arrested was that she was involved with Neuman and helped him kill her husband to reap a $2 million life insurance policy so the two could enjoy it together.
Now, Dell has emerged – prosecutors claim that he is her boyfriend, recently divorced, who helps her take care of her children.
The defense brief contends the relationship between Mrs. Sneiderman and Dell is approriate. It says "Mrs. Sneiderman denies having engaged in sexual acts with Mr. Dell prior to his divorce and admits that Mr. Dell told her he loved her while she was incarcerated."
Sneiderman is recorded talking to Dell while she was in jail, shortly after she was arrested. She is now out on bond and under house arrest at her parents home.
