Julius Reich, 64, had pleaded guilty in May to first-degree manslaughter in the stabbing his wife Dr. Robin Goldman inside a bathroom at their multi-million dollar home in Westchester County, authorities said.

Goldman, who was a pediatrician affiliated with the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, was found dead on Jan. 20, 2016.

Police found her stabbed multiple times with wounds to the chest, abdomen and back, according to authorities.

Prosecutors said Reich entered their upstairs bathroom then stabbed his wife multiple times, leaving her to die. He later called 911 and was arrested at the scene.

Public records reported the couple was in the process of a divorce, and Reich split his time between an apartment in Manhattan and the Scarsdale home he shared with his wife.

The couple’s adult children are “relieved their finally accepted responsibility for his actions,” officials with the Westchester County District Attorney’s office said in a statement.
