Hemy Neuman trial reveals new details about mental state
Hemy Neuman at a motions hearing on Jan. 4.
The week of jury selection for the trial of Hemy Neuman ended with claims about Neuman’s mental state when he shot Rusty Sneiderman outside a day care center in Dunwoody, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution and other media outlets.
Neuman has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, claiming he did not know right from wrong when he committed the crime in November 2011.
The AJC reports that Assistant DeKalb County Prosecutor Don Geary referenced a report about Neuman’s state of mind that discusses “six-foot angels resembling Barry White and Olivia Newton-John.”

Neuman’s defense attorneys have asked a judge in the case to keep jurors from hearing the full details of their client’s alleged delusions.
