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.
