A Bayport doctor convicted 10 years ago for killing his wife in 1990 died last week at an upstate prison facility where he was serving his 25 years to life sentence, according to a Newsday report.
Robert Reza, 68, was found guilty of shooting and strangling his 47-year-old wife on December 12, 1990 and reportedly was having an affair with a Sayville church organist at the time, Kathy Senese.
According to a People magazine article, dated June 17, 1991, Reza claimed to be attending a medical conference at the time of the murder and initial media reports stated it was a burglary that ended brutally.
The Rezas had been married over 20 years and were devout church members. He pleaded not guilty to the homicide count despite reportedly giving police a full confession to the murder.
