DECATUR, Ga. (AP) - Jury selection has ended for the day in the trial of Andrea Sneiderman, who's accused of lying under oath and hindering the investigation into her husband's killing. Lawyers questioned potential jurors Monday and Tuesday about their knowledge of the case and their ability to be objective. Selection of about 40 qualified jurors for the jury pool is set to resume Wednesday morning.
The pool of qualified jurors will be whittled down to a panel of 12 plus a handful of alternates Thursday. Sneiderman's husband, Rusty Sneiderman, was fatally shot in November 2010 outside a suburban Atlanta preschool. Andrea Sneiderman's former boss Hemy Neuman was convicted in the killing but was found mentally ill. Prosecutors initially said Sneiderman arranged her husband's killing, but murder charges against her were dropped last week.
