ALEXANDRIA, VA (AP) - Authorities have captured a Virginia man suspected of killing the superintendent of a small school district in western New York.

The U.S. Marshals Service announced Friday that deputies on a fugitive task force captured 42-year-old Anthony Robert Taglianetti in the Shenandoah County area of Virginia.

The agency says the deputies' investigation led them to the area, where they spotted Taglianetti's car and pulled him over. They say he's a former Marine.

Clymer Superintendent Keith Reed Jr. was reported missing Sunday evening after missing some engagements. His body was found Monday about 150 feet from his home.

Officials have said the slaying was unconnected to Reed's job as a superintendent. They haven't divulged a motive.

A man answering a Virginia phone number listed under Taglianetti's name declined to comment.
