The four-hour interview of Dunwoody daycare killing suspect Hemy Neuman will be allowed in his trial, according to a judge’s ruling on Sept. 7.
In denying the defense team’s motion to suppress Neuman’s statements, Superior Court Judge Gregory Adams ruled that Neuman “voluntarily accompanied officers to the Dunwoody Police Department” and gave a video-recorded statement.
“During the defendant’s statement there was no coercive police or government activity,” Adams stated. “There were no improper threats or promises.”
Adams also stated that Neuman “did not exercise his Constitutional right to remain silent.”
Neuman is accused of the November 2010 death of Russell Sneiderman, a 36-year-old entrepreneur who was shot several times outside Dunwoody Prep daycare, where he had just dropped off his son.
Neuman was arrested on Jan. 4 after Dunwoody Police detectives interviewed him and learned that he was the supervisor of Andrea Sneiderman, the victim’s wife. The two worked at GE Electric Energy in Marietta.
The trial is scheduled to begin on Oct. 17 and could last a month.
