Husband Charged With Murder in Stabbing Death of Scarsdale Pediatrician

A prominent Jewish pediatrician was reportedly stabbed to death in her home in the tony New York suburb of Scarsdale Wednesday — and her estranged husband was charged for the murder.

Robin Goldman, 58, who was affiliated with Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, was found slain Wednesday morning after her husband called police to report that she was seriously injured, police told the Journal News newspaper

Her husband, Jules Reich, 61, a Wall Street executive was charged with second-degree murder, the paper said Thursday.

Scarsdale police Capt. Thomas Altizio suggested police knew the motive for the horrifying crime.

“This is not a random act. This was an isolated incident,” he told the paper.

The couple, who were embroiled in a divorce, belonged to Young Israel of Scarsdale congregation in New Rochelle, a modern Orthodox congregation. They were also active in the Westchester Jewish Council.

Neighbor Roberta Graf told the Journal News called the couple “fine, upstanding people.”

“I’m just shocked to know this could happen,” she said.
