Murder charge pending in superintendent's killing

WBFO/AM 970 News

A gun believed to be the weapon used to kill Clymer school Superintendent Keith Reed has been discovered by investigators in Virginia.

Late Friday, U.S. Marshals took Anthony Taglianetti into custody. Forensic Detectives had been searching the suspect's Buick Century when the gun was discovered.

Chautauqua County District Attorney David Foley says Taglianetti currently is being held in Virginia but expects a transfer to New York State shortly.

"Mr. Taglianetti was taken to a location in Virginia. We are now in the process of obtaining a warrant for a count of murder in the second degree."

Taglianetti allegedly drove from Virginia to Clymer to kill Reed after he discovered the Superintendent was having an affair with his wife. 

Authorities believe that Taglianetti sought Reed because of an affair that was uncovered between Reed and Taglianetti's wife. Reed was engaged to be married but not to the subject of the affair.
