Jury Chosen in Taglianetti Trial

UPDATE: Opening statements in the trial are scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Lawyers in Chautauqua County have been trying for nearly a month to choose a jury in the Anthony Taglianetti murder trial. And, late yesterday, they did it.

Seven men and five woman have been sworn in as jurors. Two alternates have been chosen as well, and lawyers will try to pick two more today. The trial had been scheduled to start two weeks ago.

Taglianetti is accused of shooting 51-year-old Keith Reed Jr. to death in September of last year because he believed Reed was in a relationship with his estranged wife. Reed was the Clymer School Superintendent, a native of Salamanca and a graduate of St. Bonaventure University.
