Jacob L. Klein, a 40-year-old physician assistant from Virginia, is charged with second degree murder 

A physician assistant from Virginia is accused of stalking his ex-girlfriend for three days at her home and place of work before murdering her husband and then going on the run.

Jacob L. Klein, 40,  was arrested in Virginia on Friday and is now in federal custody.

He is expected to be extradited to New York to face a charge of second degree murder.

Klein is accused of murdering 35-year-old Philip L. Rabadi, who was married to Klein’s ex-girlfriend, Elana Z. Radin. 

Cops said Rabadi was found ‘bound and with multiple stab wounds and mutilation to his body’ at his home in New Scotland, New York, near the state capital of Albany.

Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple said authorities and loved ones found Rabadi during a welfare check after he failed to show up for work at St. Peter’s Hospital in Albany – where he also worked as a physician assistant.

Apple revealed that investigators had suspicions as to why Klein was stalking the 29-year-old woman, but did not go into detail. Rabadi did not know Klein at all.

Klein is believed to have stalked his ex in the three days prior to the attack, unbeknownst to her, according to the Times-Union.     

Using data and video from license plate readers, doorbell video cameras and other electronic devices including cell phone data, investigators were able to piece together a timeline of Klein’s activity before and after the murder.

It showed how Klein had visited the couple’s home in the days prior to the alleged murder.

Klein drove from Franklin County, Virginia, up to Albany, New York where he rented a car from Enterprise and allegedly stalked out the the victim’s home and hospital where both Rabadi and his wife worked. 

Rabadi was a surgical physician assistant and had begun working at St. Peter’s Hospital in 2019.

On Wednesday morning, after his ex had already left for work, Klein walked up to the front door of the couple’s home whereupon Rabadi opened it. 

Surveillance camera footage shows Rabadi appearing ‘to react as if a weapon was brandished.’  

After the alleged murder, last Wednesday, Klein is said to have returned his rental vehicle and then drove out of New York State back to Virginia.

On Thursday, his whereabouts continued to be monitored, largely based on tracking his mobile phone.

On Friday, Klein was tracked in Memphis, Tennessee before returning to Virginia. 

As he approached the Virginia state line, troopers from both states together with a police helicopter stopped Klein half a mile across the border.

After staying in his car for several minutes and refusing to follow orders, Klein eventually sat for several more minutes before surrendering to police without incident.  

A gun was found in the car Klein was driving when he was arrested, but investigators were still tracing the weapon.

Klein, a U.S. military veteran did not have any prior criminal history.
