Taglianetti's wife gives damaging testimony about her relationship with Keith Reed on Day-Four of murder trial of her ex-husband...

The wife of the man accused of murdering Clymer School Superintendent Keith Reed, Jr. found herself caught up in a number of alleged lies during cross-examination Friday afternoon.  It was also established during Day-Four of the trial that Mary Taglianetti lied about her residency in New York in seeking a divorce from her husband.  Special Correspondent Dave O'Connor reports that Mrs. Taglianetti presented herself on the on-line dating service Match.com as being "single" when she was still married to Taglianetti, and had not sought a legal separation at that point.  She testified that she met Reed on-line, and they met up at an Albany restaurant.  They later stopped at a convenience store, and they later had sex.  However... that was the only time, she said, that they had a "physical" encounter.  She said they later exchanged nude pictures of each other on-line... and, engaged in what is called "sexting."  Testimony will resume next Tuesday because Monday is County Court Calendar Day.  Judge John Ward also announced there would be three-days of testimony next week because there will be no Court on Friday.
