Ugh, this is awful:
Any killing would likely have rattled the residents of Scarsdale, which hadn’t seen a homicide in nearly four decades.
But the death of New York City pediatrician Robin Goldman was especially shocking for this Westchester County community because of the suspect: her husband, accounting firm partner Julius “Jules” Reich.
“People say this type of thing doesn’t happen in their town but it really doesn’t here,” said Marcy Klein, 59 years old, who manages a dog-grooming business in Scarsdale, 10 miles outside of New York City. “We are all shocked.”
Mr. Reich, 61, was arrested Wednesday and charged with second-degree murder. He was arraigned Wednesday and is being held without bail at the Westchester County jail, according to the county’s Department of Correction.
Police say they responded to a 911 call made by Reich "reporting that a woman was seriously injured." Dr. Goldman was found dead in their home from stab wounds.
According to his LinkedIn profile, Reich spent over 20 years working at PwC in various advisory roles prior to joining WeiserMazars in mid-2014. WM's general counsel told the Journal, "We want to express our heartfelt sympathy to the family and all those affected by this tragic event."
