March 8, 2016 -- Acting Westchester County District Attorney James A. McCarty announced today that Julius Reich (DOB 01/27/54) of 50 Lincoln Rd., Scarsdale NY has been arraigned on an indictment charging him with:

  • one count of Murder in the Second Degree, a class "A-1" Felony,
  • one count of Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Fourth Degree, a class "A" Misdemeanor

in the death of Robin Goldman, M.D.

"In what can only be described as an ambush, the defendant, as alleged in the indictment, entered the bathroom while his wife was showering and repeatedly stabbed her to death. The two were in the process of divorcing but remained living in the same residence" said Acting District Attorney McCarty.

On Jan. 20, 2016 between 8 a.m. and 10:10 a.m. the defendant entered the upstairs bathroom of the home while the victim was taking a shower.

Using an eight-inch kitchen knife, Reich stabbed the victim 22 times resulting in wounds to the hands, chest, abdomen and back. She suffered punctures to her lung, heart, diaphragm, liver and kidney. She died at the scene.

At the conclusion of the attack, the defendant went downstairs. Sometime later he called 911. Responding Scarsdale Police officers discovered the victim's body. The defendant was placed under arrest.

The defendant's remand continues.

His next court appearance will be on April 5, 2016.

He faces an indeterminate term of imprisonment, a maximum of which is 25 years to life in state prison.

Assistant District Attorneys Christine O'Connor and John O'Rourke of the Superior Court Trial Division are prosecuting the case.
