A Manhattan financial advisor has been charged with second-degree murder after his pediatrician wife was found stabbed to death inside their $2.8 million New York home.
Jules Reich, 61, was taken into custody Wednesday after police say a 911 call placed at his Scarsdale home led to the discovery of Dr. Robin Goldman, 58, suffering multiple stab wounds in a shower, the Westchester District Attorney's Office said.
Sources, speaking to the New York Post, described Reich as having defensive wounds.
Scarsdale Police Capt. Thomas Altizio declined to provide a possible motive for the grisly attack at a press conference Wednesday but said, "this is not a random act," according to the Journal News.
In a 911 call placed by Reich just after 10 a.m., police said he reported his wife as seriously injured. First responders, arriving three minutes after that call, pronounced her dead at the scene.
"She was great, a great person, amazing," her son, Adam Reich, told the Post.
Reich, who according to his LinkedIn profile works for financial advisory company WeiserMazars, had filed for divorce back in August, the Journal News reported.
His wife worked at the Children's Hospital at Montefiore in the Bronx.
His first court appearance is scheduled for Jan. 26
