Scarsdale Divorce Case Ends in Tragedy

Husband Charged with Killing Beloved Doctor

In the first homicide in nearly 40 years in Scarsdale, Jules Reich, a partner in Manhattan financial services company Weiser Mazars, has been charged with second degree murder in the stabbing death of his wife, Dr. Robin Goldman. Reich had filed for divorce last August and the parties had a scheduled court appearance on January 25, 2016. On the morning of January 19, police received a 911 call from Reich, saying that Goldman had been seriously injured. When police arrived moment later, they found Goldman in the shower with multiple stab wounds.

Though neither party had ever reported domestic violence to authorities, friends and neighbors acknowledged that they knew there was discord in the marriage. Prosecutors told the judge at a bail hearing that Goldman was so afraid of Reich that she had all the locks changed at the marital home. They also said that Goldman’s children wanted to get a protection order because of their fear of him. Reich’s attorney asked that bail be set at $150,000, but the judge denied bail.

According to prosecutors, Reich has a long history in the mergers and acquisitions profession, and has “money stashed all over the world,” making him a significant flight risk. Conversely, they portrayed Goldman as a woman committed to caring for children, both in her career and at home. She worked as a pediatrician at Montefiore Medical Group’s Comprehensive Family Care facility in the Bronx. She was also an assistant professor of medicine at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Her children said, though, that she had limited her practice to three days a week to spend more time with family, including four grandchildren.
