Jury deliberates in NY murder trial of Va. man

MAYVILLE, N.Y. (AP) -- A jury has begun deliberating in the murder trial of a Virginia man accused of shooting an upstate New York school superintendent.

Anthony Taglianetti is on trial in Chautauqua (shuh-TAWK-kwuh) County in western New York for the 2012 death of Keith Reed. Prosecutors say Taglianetti drove 350 miles from his Virginia home and shot Reed after learning his wife had an online relationship with him.

Reed was the superintendent of the Clymer Central School District.

Jurors heard closing arguments Friday before beginning deliberations.

District Attorney David Foley told jurors the evidence, including the murder weapon that was found in Taglianetti's car, clearly proves that Taliganetti is the killer.

Defense attorney Nathaniel Barone called the charges pure speculation.
