According to reports, Kolodich had a confrontation with his 39-year-old gardener, which escalated into a stabbing. His horrified wife, aged 55, rushed to his aid upon hearing his screams. Unfortunately, she too was stabbed by the gardener, but managed to escape. The gardener then buried Kolodich in the basement to conceal his crime before fleeing the scene.

The suspect was later arrested, and the investigation into the murder is ongoing. Meanwhile, Kolodich’s wife received medical treatment for her injuries and survived the violent attack.
