Anthony Taglianetti's was arrested in Virginia Friday for the murder of 51 year old Keith Reed. At an arraignment hearing in Virginia Monday morning Taglianetti waived his right to extradition.

"I would say most of the time people waive their right to extradition. I mean at least what I've observed here in Chautauqua County," said David Foley, the Chautauqua County district attorney.

Now, it's up to Foley to prove to the court in Virginia that Taglianetti is the person charged with second degree murder in his felony complaint.

Foleys says that involves filing standard paper work like a copy of the charges, a governor's warrant, and Taglianetti's drivers license at an extradition hearing on October 29th at 11:30 a.m. according to affiliate WJLA.

"the standard of proof is relatively low, what the court needs to see is relatively low so I anticipate the court down there will ultimately authorize his extradition," said Foley.

Authorities in Chautauqua County believe Taglianetti was on a mission to kill Reed after learning Reed had an affair with his wife, and carried out the plan on September 21st traveling from Virginia to Clymer and shooting Reed to death .

Mary Taglianetti says she and her husband were separated and had a turbulent marriage and says he's guilty. She and their four children, still in Virginian are asking for privacy.
