Dunwoody Daycare Murder: Hemy Neuman is Mentally Ill, Not Legally Responsible for Killing, Psychologist Testifies


"My client did not see any signs of a mental illness, just the many signs of a man caught cheating," the attorney, Esther Panitch, told ABC News.

Another psychiatrist – who spent three hours meeting with Neuman in jail to assess his mental state – also testified Wednesday. Dr. Julie Rand Dorney told the court that Neuman showed "some possible psychosis," and that she wasn't sure whether the alleged affair was real or not.

"[Neuman] would at one point say he had sex with this woman and at later points when I asked him if he was having an affair with her, he would say, 'I don't know, I guess if she says it didn't happen, I guess it didn't happen,'" Dorney testified.

The trial is expected to conclude early next week.
