A man has been charged with murder in the stabbing death of his wife, a Bronx pediatrician, in their Scarsdale, New York, home early Wednesday, PEOPLE confirms.

Julius “Jules” Reich has been charged with second-degree murder for allegedly killing Robin Goldman, a spokesman for the Westchester County district attorney’s office tells PEOPLE.

Police in the affluent New York City suburb said in a statement that they received a 911 call at around 10:09 a.m. Wednesday and were on the scene at 50 Lincoln Road within three minutes.

Police confirmed they were investigating a homicide of a 58-year-old woman there, and that they had a 61-year-old male in custody. They did not speculate on a possible motive.

Reich, a lawyer and CPA for the accounting firm WeiserMazars, called 911 himself and was found with Goldman’s body in their home in Scarsdale’s exclusive Heathcoate neighborhood, reports the New York Post.

Scarsdale police Capt. Thomas Altizio told WCBS-TV: “I can confirm that both the person that we have in custody and the victim resided in the house.” This is the first homicide in Scarsdale since 1977, he added.

Scarsdale police told PEOPLE that a press conference will be held later on Thursday to discuss the crime. A spokeswoman at Scarsdale Village Court told PEOPLE she was not at liberty to discuss the case.

In their press release, Scarsdale police said they were “confident that this is an isolated incident which poses no threat to the community.”
