Pediatrician slain in home in affluent New York suburb

A 58-year-old pediatrician affiliated with a New York City children’s hospital was slain inside her multimillion-dollar home in an affluent suburb.

Police say it’s the first homicide in the Scarsdale village in nearly four decades.

They would not say how the woman died and did not immediately release her name.

Police say a man who lives in the home and is believed to have called 911 is being questioned by police.

The house is owned by Dr. Robin Goldman and her husband, Jules Reich, who works in finance in New York. Goldman was a pediatrician affiliated with the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx.

Police say officers went to the Lincoln Road home around 10 a.m. Wednesday after receiving a report of a seriously injured woman there.
