SCARSDALE, N.Y. — Prosecutors say the husband of a 58-year-old pediatrician at a New York City children's hospital has been arrested and charged with her murder inside their multimillion-dollar home in an affluent suburb.

A spokesman for the Westchester district attorney's office says Jules Reich was charged with second-degree murder on Thursday.

Reich is a tax specialist at a New York City firm.

His wife, Dr. Robin Goldman, was found dead in their Scarsdale home Wednesday after police responded to a 911 call of a woman seriously injured there.

Goldman was a pediatrician affiliated with the Children's Hospital at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx.

“We were shocked and deeply saddened to learn about the sudden death of our colleague, Dr. Robin Goldman," the hospital said in a statement.

"Robin was a dedicated physician cherished by her colleagues as a positive and compassionate presence. Her passion for medicine was an inspiration to those who worked with her. Her passing is a great loss for all of us, and we extend our heartfelt sympathy to her family, friends, patients, colleagues and students."

Prosecutors didn't immediately say how Goldman died.

Public records show that Reich had petitioned for divorce in August 2015.

It's the first homicide in the Scarsdale village in nearly four decades.
