MAYVILLE – The Virginia man wanted in the Sept. 21 shooting death of Clymer School Superintendent Keith L. Reed Jr. was formally indicted by a Chautauqua County grand jury on a count of second-degree murder Wednesday, officials said.

Anthony Robert “Rob” Taglianetti, 42, had been in a Virginia jail since he was pulled over Sept. 28 near the Shenandoah National Forest, where authorities said he had been hiding since shooting Reed outside the school official’s home in Clymer.

Investigators say Taglianetti drove from his home outside Washington, D.C., to Clymer on Sept. 21 with the intention of killing Reed because he had found emails between Reed and his wife.

Investigators with the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office drove Taglianetti to Mayville on Tuesday.

Taglianetti, who was represented by a public defender, entered a not-guilty plea in Chautauqua County Judge John Ward’s courtroom Wednesday at his arraignment.

Ward set bail for Taglianetti at $2.5 million cash or $5 million real property bond.
