MAYVILLE - Mary Taglianetti sent her husband several frantic text messages before and after the death of Clymer Schools Superintendent Keith Reed Jr.
Michael G. Williams, sergeant investigator for the Chautauqua County Sheriff's Office, read aloud the messages that Anthony R. Taglianetti II received from his wife before and after Sept. 21, 2012, the date Reed died in an apparent homicide.
"Please come back ... I'm so confused," texted Mary Taglianetti to her husband on Sept. 20, 2012.
"Please know I had nothing to do with that email," she texted the following day.
The email mentioned was a sexually explicit one between Mary Taglianetti and Reed that her husband discovered in August 2012.
Taglianetti is suspected of leaving his Virginia home on the night of Sept. 20, 2012, driving 350 miles to Clymer and murdering Reed at his home.
Mary Taglianetti also texted a number of messages to her husband after Sept. 21, 2012, with a more conciliatory tone.
"Would you consider marriage counseling," she texted on Sept. 25, 2012. "I'm so sorry for my sins," she texted shortly afterward.
Mary Taglianetti was not aware of Reed's death until Sept. 26, 2012.
Public Defender Nathaniel Barone had Williams indicate that Reed's house had several weapons inside including five shotguns, three rifles and multiple handguns. Several containers of ammunition were also found inside.
The trial is continuing this afternoon. Check post-journal.com for updates.
