Hemy Zvi Neuman is escorted out of his arraignment Wednesday. Neuman is charged in the November slaying of a father who had just dropped off his 2-year-old son at preschool.


Hemy Zvi Neuman faces a murder charge in the shooting death of Russell Sneiderman, 36, who was shot several times in the parking lot of Dunwoody Prep Preschool minutes after he dropped off his 2-year-old son on Nov. 18, said Dunwoody Police Sgt. Mike Carlson.

Neuman, 48, supervised Sneiderman's wife, Andrea, in the quality and engineering department at GE Energy in Atlanta, the company said. Andrea Sneiderman declined to comment when reached at her home late Wednesday.

At a brief court hearing Wednesday, Neuman requested a public defender for his next appearance, which was scheduled for Feb. 8. He would not answer any questions from reporters as he was escorted back to DeKalb County Jail, where he is being held without bond.

Police have said they believe Sneiderman might have been targeted because no words were exchanged between the gunman and the suspect.

Neuman, who authorities said is from Israel, said little during the court appearance. He has a home in suburban Cobb County, authorities said, and his Facebook page said he was a graduate of Georgia Tech and a father of three, including two children who study engineering at his alma mater.

Sneiderman's death and the search for his killer, who witnesses said fled the scene in a silver minivan, shocked the affluent north Atlanta suburb of Dunwoody. Authorities urged witnesses to come forward with tips and Sneiderman's family offered a reward. Police even set up a system that allowed tipsters to send encrypted text messages.

Sneiderman, a father of two had an MBA from Harvard and was a financial consultant in Atlanta before joining a private business venture, his friends said.

So, maybe this is just

So, maybe this is just conjecture, but it seems like a love triangle, or an abused spouse. Something out of whack on this one. Seems too planned to just be a crime. More of a crime of passion.
