Andrea Sneiderman, a Georgia woman accused of lying to authorities on the circumstances surrounding her husband's shooting death in 2010, was found guilty of perjury and other counts Monday.

Prosecutors believed that Sneiderman lied during a police investigation into the death of Rusty Sneiderman, The Associated Press reported.  Rusty Sneiderman was shot to death in November 2010 outside a suburban Atlanta preschool.

Prosecutors also believe she did not tell the truth during the trial of her former employer Hemy Neuman, who was convicted in March 2012 for the shooting but found mentally ill.

Before Andrea Sneiderman was found guilty of perjury, she rejected a plea deal that would have required her to spend no more than a year in prison, reported the the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Sneiderman was convicted on nine counts, including perjury, making false statements and concealment of material information, according to WAGA-TV. The jury, though, found her not guilty on four other similar charges.

The verdict suggested that the jury believed Andrea Sneiderman had a relationship with Neuman, but did not know of her former's boss' plan to kill her husband.

One unidentified juror told WAGA-TV that he believed Sneiderman tried to cover for Neuman in misstatements at the earlier trial against Neuman.

"After you look at the evidence, the emails, what was going on, what was said, the witnesses that came, you would probably say the same thing," said Juror 57.

Prosecutors believed Sneiderman repeatedly lied about having a romantic relationship with Neuman, which slowed the investigation into the shooting, according to the AP.

Sneiderman's defense team denied the claim and charged that prosecutors wanted some sort of conviction against her since initial malice and felony murder charges was dropped.

Sneiderman, 37, was arrested in August 2012 after prosecutors initially charged that she helped orchestrate her husband's shooting and spent much of the past year under house arrest.

WAGA-TV reported that Judge Gregory Adams will hear sentencing arguments Tuesday before issuing a ruling. Perjury carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in Georgia while Sneiderman's other charges carry a maximum of five years each, according to the AP.
