DECATUR, Georgia — A judge won't grant a new trial for woman convicted of lying during an investigation into her husband's shooting death outside a suburban Atlanta preschool.

DeKalb County Superior Court Judge Gregory Adams issued an order Tuesday denying Andrea Sneiderman's motion for a new trial.

Sneiderman's lawyer argued his client's alleged false testimony in the trial of Hemy Neuman wasn't material to her former supervisor's conviction. Neuman was found guilty but mentally ill in the November 2010 slaying of Sneiderman's husband, Rusty.

Sneiderman was convicted in August 2013 on charges including perjury and making false statements to investigators.

Adams wrote the evidence against Sneiderman was more than enough to convict her. Adams also wrote the state gave the jury enough evidence to determine whether her statements were material to Neuman's conviction.
