(CNN) — Prosecutors in the Andrea Sneiderman trial intend to drop murder charges against the widow, according to WSB.

Sneiderman was charged with malice murder and felony murder related to the death of her husband. Prosecutors also will drop one count of aggravated assault.

A gag order is in place, but HLN producers are trying to confirm this information with prosecutors and Sneiderman’s attorneys.

Sneiderman is still facing four counts of perjury and seven counts of making false statements to law enforcement officials, and one count of hindering the apprehension of a criminal.

If convicted, Sneiderman could still be facing a sizable prison sentence. One conviction of perjury carries a possible sentence of five to 10 years under Georgia law.

Rusty Sneiderman was gunned down in a suburban Atlanta neighborhood in November of 2010, in a busy parking lot outside a pre-school with children in a playground less than 30 feet away. He was shot four times.

Hemy Neuman, the gunman, is serving life in prison for Rusty Sneiderman’s murder.
