When five out of 22 staffers left Dash Design last year, owner Ashen understood that some naturally wanted to move on to a new challenge. But he also discovered after talking to employees that they felt the culture in his New York-based interior design company had changed since he brought in a new business partner. Ashen sought help from a team-building expert to help employees feel more connected to the business, and he focused on mentoring younger staffers. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig)

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — A former financial services executive has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for the 2016 death of his estranged wife, a prominent doctor, in their suburban New York home.
Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino Jr. says Julius Reich (rysh) was sentenced on Wednesday.
Dr. Robin Goldman, a pediatrician, was stabbed 22 times with an 8-inch kitchen knife as she took a shower. She still shared a Scarsdale home with Reich while they were getting a divorce.
Reich pleaded guilty to manslaughter in May.
The prosecutor says the victim’s adult children had expressed a “strong desire” to “avoid the trauma of a trial.”
They were not present for the sentencing.
