DECATUR, GA --  Prosecutors in the Andrea Sneiderman murder case are asking a court to allow them to seek a sentence of life without parole, if a jury convicts her on murder and other charges.

COMPLETE COVERAGE | The Hemy Neuman Trial

Mrs. Sneiderman is the widow of Rusty Sneiderman.  He was shot to death by Mrs. Sneiderman's boss, Hemy Neuman in November 2010 outside a Dunwoody day care.  In March, a DeKalb County jury said Neuman was guilty but mentally ill in the case.  He's  serving life without parole

She was arrested August 2 after a DeKalb County grand jury indicted Mrs. Sneiderman, saying she conspired with Neuman in the murder because they were having an affair.  Mrs. Sneiderman has denied an affair with Neuman.  Her attorneys say she is innocent of the criminal charges.

Mrs. Sneiderman's attorney, J. Tom Morgan, says the decision to seek a life-without-parole sentence is "a ploy" by prosecutors to get a plea agreement from Mrs. Sneiderman.  Morgan says the case will go to trial. 

Mrs. Sneiderman is incarcerated at the DeKalb County jail.  She will seek bond during a hearing August 21.
