DECATUR, Ga. (AP) — A judge has set a $500,000 bond for the widow charged in her husband's slaying outside a suburban Atlanta preschool.

Tuesday's decision followed a hearing in which attorneys for Andrea Sneiderman argued she was not a flight risk.

Sneiderman was indicted Aug. 2 on charges of malice murder and criminal attempt to commit murder in the Nov. 18, 2010, death of her husband, Russell "Rusty" Sneiderman. He was shot shortly after dropping off the couple's young son at the preschool.

Prosecutors allege Andrea Sneiderman was having an affair with the gunman, Hemy Neuman, who also was her boss. They say she conspired with him to kill her husband in part to collect $2 million in life insurance policies.

She has denied an affair and denied knowing anything about the shooting.
