SCARSDALE, N.Y. - Jules Reich, the Scarsdale financial investor that was charged with murdering his wife earlier this year, is scheduled to appear in front of a judge in White Plains on Wednesday.
Reich, who allegedly committed the first homicide in Scarsdale in nearly four decades, pleaded not guilty to murder charges in March, and was scheduled for a pre-trial hearing in Westchester County Court on Wednesday.
The former financial executive remains remanded to the Westchester County Jail after being charged with second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon for his role in the death of his wife, Robin Goldman, who he stabbed nearly two dozen times.
Shortly after 10 a.m. on Jan. 20, first-responders from the police department and Scarsdale Volunteer Ambulance Corps rushed to 50 Lincoln Road when Reich, 61, alerted them that a woman had been “seriously injured” during an emergency 9-1-1 call.
Police arrested Reich immediately, and the paramedics found Goldman, a prominent pediatrician in Manhattan, “in a lifeless state” after suffering stab wounds. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to acting Westchester County District Attorney James McCarty, Reich stabbed Goldman 22 times with an eight-inch kitchen knife, wounding her in the hands, chest, abdomen and back. The 58-year-old victim suffered multiple puncture wounds to her lung, heart, diaphragm, liver and kidney during the attack.
Reich is being held without bail. He faces life in prison if he is convicted.
“In what can only be described as an ambush, the defendant, as alleged int he indictment, entered the bathroom while his wife was showering and repeatedly stabbed her to death,” McCarty said when formally charging Reich. “The two were in the process of divorcing, but remained living in the same residence.”
