Financial guru Jules Reich was charged early Thursday with stabbing his wife to death in their Scarsdale mansion.
Reich was charged by Scarsdale police with second-degree murder for the bloody attack on prominent pediatrician Robin Goldman, 58, in their $ 2.8 million home, The Journal-News reported.
Court records show that Reich, 61, had recently filed for divorce and hired a lawyer. A court date with a mediator was set for Jan. 25.
Goldman, the records indicate, had not yet hired an attorney.
Reich was due to be arraigned in Scarsdale Village Court Thursday. He was being held at the Westchester County jail.
Reich is an international tax specialist, corporate consultant and partner at WeiserMazars LLP on W. 50th St.
His slain wife was a pediatrician affiliated with the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, officials said.
It was the first homicide in Scarsdale in four decades.
The last murder in the wealthy town was in 1977, when 23-year-old Yale graduate Richard Herrin smashed his 20-year-old ex-girlfriend Bonnie Garland’s head in with a hammer as she slept in her parents’ home, officials said.
Herrin was convicted of manslaughter and served 17 years in prison.
