Anthony Robert Taglianetti, II
CLYMER, N.Y. - Acting Clymer School Superitendent Edward Bailey tells 2 On Your Side that Anthony Taglianetti, the suspect on the murder of Superintendent Keith Reed, Jr., came to district offices, looking for Reed.
Bailey says before Anthony Taglianetti allegedly killed Keith Reed, he went to the school district's office and asked for a substitute teacher application. He also asked to see Reed, who was not in at the time. Taglianetti is accused of killing Reed at the superintendent's home.
Also Monday, Anthony Robert Taglianetti, who is described as the only suspect in the slaying of Clymer School Superintendent Keith Reed, decided not to waive extradition to New York State to face charges.
As a result, an extradition hearing will have to take place before Taglianetti can be returned to face charges in Chautauqua county, according to Chautauqua County Sheriff Joseph Gerace, who says the matter could now take up to one month to arrange.
Taglianetti appeared before a Prince William County judge this morning, who set his next court appearance for October 29th.
"My office needs to first send an application to the governor's office in New York State to get a Governor's Warrant," explained Chautauqua County District Attorney David Foley. "It needs to be sent to the governor's office in Virginia and then they would direct an extradition hearing...I don't expect it to be a problem," Foley said.
In most extradition hearings involving two U.S. states, the burden is on prosecutors more or less simply prove the identity of the person standing before the court, and that indeed they are wanted for a crime in another state.
Foley added that there is no threat for Taglianetti to flee with an extradition hearing hanging over his head.
"Under those circumstances, he is not even eligible to apply for bail," Foley said.
Taglianetti was captured near Shenandoah National Park in Virginia last week by U.S. Marshals.
