The trial for Hemy Neuman, suspected of the murder of Dunwoody entrepreneur Russell Sneiderman late last year, has been set for Oct. 17.
During a May 5 hearing to schedule the trial, Judge Gregory Adams also said he plans to allow pre-trial motions in August.
DeKalb District Attorney Robert James said he is ready to go to trial, while Neuman’s attorney Doug Peters said his team is working diligently but it is premature to say they would be ready to present thier case.
Peters estimated that the trial would take about 30 days.
Last month, Neuman, 45, pleaded not guilty to charges of malice murder and possessing a firearm during the commission of a felony. The charges stem from the November 2010 death of Sneiderman, 36, who was shot multiple times outside Dunwoody Prep daycare, where he had just dropped off his son.
Neuman is also facing allegations by his wife Ariela that he had an affair with Andrea Sneiderman, the victim’s wife. Andrea Sneiderman worked under Hemy Neuman, an operations and quality manager at GE Electric Energy in Marietta.
Ariela Neuman filed for legal separation from her husband in February.
