DECATUR, Ga. (AP) — A judge has signed an order dropping murder charges against a metro Atlanta woman once accused of arranging for her husband to be killed.
The judge on Monday signed the order before jury selection began in the trial of Andrea Sneiderman. Prosecutors on Friday asked to dismiss murder charges in the case.
Sneiderman's husband, Rusty Sneiderman, was gunned down in November 2010 outside a suburban Atlanta preschool. Andrea Sneiderman's former boss, Hemy Neuman, was convicted in the killing but found mentally ill in March 2012.
Until Friday, she faced charges of malice murder, felony murder and aggravated assault. She still faces lesser charges, including lying to police and hindering an investigation.
Sneiderman has pleaded not guilty and has denied prosecutors' allegations she was having an affair with Neuman.
