MAYVILLE - In his first appearance in Chautauqua County Court, Anthony Robert Taglianetti II on Wednesday, Dec. 19 pleaded innocent to a second-degree murder charge in the death of the Clymer Schools superintendent.
Taglianetti, 42, is being represented by Ned Barone, Chautauqua County public defender, in the September homicide of Keith Reed Jr. - a high-profile murder that has rocked the small Clymer town of roughly 1,700 residents.
Taglianetti, who was indicted on one count of second-degree murder by a grand jury, is maintaining his innocence and looked forward to returning to New York, Barone said.
Wednesday's arraignment was before County Court Judge John T. Ward. At least three students wearing Clymer school apparel were seated in the county courtroom.
