 A prominent Jewish pediatrician, Robin Goldman, was stabbed to death by her husband in their home in the New York suburb of Scarsdale, police said.

Julius Reich, 61, a partner in a New York financial advisory firm, was charged with second-degree murder in the killing Wednesday of his 58-year-old wife. The family belonged to the Young Israel of Scarsdale, an Orthodox synagogue, and their children were graduates of Westchester Day School, an Orthodox school in nearby Mamaroneck. The couple also reportedly were active members of the Westchester Jewish Council.

The killing took place during a domestic dispute at the couple’s mansion, and Goldman died at the scene, a law enforcement source told the New York Daily News.

Goldman was affiliated with Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx and was an assistant professor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, according to the Journal News.

Reich is a tax specialist for WeiserMazars and previously worked at the international firm PricewaterhouseCoopers. He had petitioned for divorce in 2015, with the matter still pending, the Journal News reported.

Scarsdale, located about 20 miles north of Manhattan and one of the wealthiest suburbs in the country, had not seen a murder since 1977, according to the Journal News.

The couple’s synagogue is no stranger to tragedy. In 2008, its rabbi and his wife, Jacob and Deborah Rubenstein, died in their home in an overnight fire on the Sabbath that was ignited by a lightning strike while they were sleeping.
