Husband gets 20 years in jail for butchering pediatrician wife

A Scarsdale man was sentenced to 20 years behind bars on Wednesday for the savage slabbing death of his physician wife in 2016.

Julius Reich, a former financial services executive, stabbed Dr. Robin Goldman, a prominent pediatrician, 22 times with an 8-inch kitchen knife as she took a shower.

They were getting a divorce but still living together in their Scarsdale home when Reich killed her.

Reich, 64, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in May.

The DA said the couple’s adult children had a “strong desire” to “avoid the trauma of a trial.”

“I shall bear the guilt forever,” Reich told the court, according to the Journal News.

The couple’s three adult children were not in court on Wednesday.

Reich fought back tears and acknowledged the damage he’s inflicted to all his loved ones. Goldman was 58.

“I hope and pray that they stay strong,” he said, “to continue their lives and careers with the love and devotion their mother exemplified.”

Westchester County Court Judge Barry Warhit signed off on the plea bargain and reminded Reich he’ll always be known as a cold-blooded killer.

“What you did was unforgivable,” Warhit told him. “Your legacy for all time will be what you’ve done. You’ll always be known for that.”

After Reich stabbed his wife to death on Jan. 20, 2016, he walked downstairs, and smoked a cigarette before calling cops to report the slaying.

He’s been in jail, held without bail, ever since that day.
