DECATUR, Ga. (AP) -- Lawyers for a man charged with murder in a
slaying outside a Dunwoody preschool asked a judge to seal several
motions from the media's scrutiny.
Hemy Neuman's attorneys asked Superior Judge Gregory Adams on
Tuesday to allow them to shield the filings from the public because
they could prejudice the jury pool.
Media attorney Thomas Clyde argued that the request was unwarranted and unnecessary.
Adams did not immediately issue a ruling.
Neuman is charged with the November 2010 shooting death of Russell Sneiderman, who was killed minutes after he dropped off his
2-year-old son at the preschool in November. He has pleaded not
guilty, and a judge has set his trial date for Oct. 17.
Neuman was the supervisor of Sneiderman's wife, Andrea, in GE Energy's quality and engineering department.
