Andrea Sneiderman will spend at least two more months in prison, the state parole board announced Tuesday.
The Dunwoody widow is serving a five-year sentence at the Arrendale State Prison in northeast Georgia after being convicted on charges of perjury and hindering the investigation into the November 2010 fatal shooting of her husband, Rusty, by her former supervisor at GE Energy, Hemy Neuman.
She was eligible for release on Tuesday but the State Board of Pardons and Paroles determined she should serve an additional two months, board spokesman Steve Hayes said in a news release.
“The board’s decision follows the clemency guidelines recommendation of 22 months to serve prior to parole,” Hayes said.
A final decision will be made in June and, if approved, an exact parole release date will be set then, he said.
Sneiderman spent nearly a year under house arrest after she was charged with conspiring to kill her husband in Aug. 2012. Those charges were dropped just before her trial commenced in late July.
