Taglianetti Trial Underway

Anthony Taglianetti drove from Viriginia to Clymer, New York, last September with the intent to kill Keith Reed Jr. because he found an e-mail exchange between Reed and his wife.

That was part of the opening statement from District Attorney David Foley in Taglianetti’s murder trial that started this morning. Foley also said investigators discovered a handgun wrapped in that e-mail that Taglianetti had printed out. It had Taglianetti’s DNA and Reed’s blood on it.

Mary Taglianetti and her husband were separated when she had a brief relationship with Reed. They hadn’t had contact with each for two years, until she friended him on Facebook last year. The e-mail exchange happened about a month before the murder.

Defense attorney Ned Barone told the jury Taglianetti did not kill Reed and that Mary Taglianetti is a liar and a master manipulator. She is expected to testify at some point.

The trial could last up to a month.
