The husband of Arizona veterinarian Kerman Dubash has been charged with first-degree murder and domestic violence after she was removed from life support.
Dr. Dubash, DVM, MS, the co-owner of Pusch Ridge Pet Clinic in Oro Valley, a suburb of Tucson, died Monday night at a hospital. She was 50.
A memorial service is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Friday at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Tucson.
Emergency personnel were called to Dubash’s home April 12. She was found unconscious after an apparent assault, police stated, and CPR was performed.
Her husband, former veterinarian George A. Majewski, 62, remains in custody.
His license was revoked in 2010 after run-ins with a client and with administrators at the Arizona State Veterinary Medical Examining Board.
A psychiatrist who examined Majewski described him as suffering from severe mental illness and bipolar disorder. He also experienced post traumatic stress disorder after defecting from communist Poland, the psychiatrist reported.
Kerman Dubash’s profile on the Pusch Ridge website called her “an avid hiker” who “truly enjoys exploring the wide open spaces of Arizona with her family.”
A 1986 graduate of Bombay Veterinary College in India, she earned a master’s degree from Ohio State University and served as a teaching assistant at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine.
A Pusch Ridge employee declined to comment.
