Virginia man being charged with death of former Sherburne-Earlville principal

By SPENCER DAVIDSON

MAYVILLE, N.Y. (AP) - Jury selection is nearly completed for the murder trial of a Virginia man charged with killing the superintendent of upstate New York, Clymer school district, and former Sherburne-Earlville school principal.
 
Local media outlets report that 12 jurors and two alternates have been sworn in for Anthony Taglianetti's trial on second-degree murder charges in the fatal shooting of Keith Reed Jr. Two more alternates still need to be seated before the trial can begin.
 
Taglianetti, of Woodbridge, Va., is accused of driving to Clymer in New York's southwest corner in September 2012 and shooting the 51-year-old Reed outside his home. Reed was the superintendent of the Clymer school district.
 
Taglianetti was arrested in Virginia a week after the slaying.
 
Chautauqua County prosecutors say Taglianetti believed Reed was having an affair with Taglianetti's wife.
