'Dateline' to feature Taglianetti murder trial tonight

One of the most shocking homicides to occur in Western New York in recent years is about to get some national attention.

The NBC News program "Dateline" this evening will feature a report on the murder of former Clymer School Superintendent Keith L. Reed Jr., killed in his home in 2012.

Anthony “Rob” Taglianetti II was convicted of second-degree murder last year. Prosecutors said Taglianetti was sent into a jealous rage after discovering one of several email exchanges between Reed and his ex-wife. The former Marine drove 350 miles from his Woodbridge, Va., home and shot Reed once in the chest and twice in the back, authorities said.

Reed’s body was found in a hedgerow near his rural Clymer home, three days after he was last seen by friends and family.

Taglianetti, who did not testify at trial, received the maximum sentence.

From the NBC news release: "As his family struggled to make sense of the horror, investigators looked for answers. Dennis Murphy reports on a story about a small-town murder brewed in cyber-space."

Here’s a link to a video preview of the "Dateline" story.

Dateline airs at 8 p.m. on WGRZ Channel 2.
