Taglianetti Pleads Not Guilty
42-year-old Anthony Robert Taglianetti, who is charged with second-degree murder, did not speak during the court proceedings that lasted less than five minutes. His lawyer, a county public defender, entered the plea on his behalf. Bail has been set at $2.5 million.
Investigators believe Taglianetti traveled from his home in Virginia to kill Reed because he believed Reed was having a relationship with his estranged wife.
Taglianetti was captured by US Marshals in Virginia’s Shenandoah National Forest eight days after the murder in September.
