Nancy Uhlman Obituary, Death – A man who formerly resided in Westborough has been accused with the murder of his mother. On Friday, June 2, the 53-year-old resident of Marlborough known as Daniel Uhlman was arraigned in the Marlborough District Court. He was charged with two charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon causing serious bodily injury, one count of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon on a person over the age of 60, and one crime of armed assault to murder a person over the age of 60.
On Thursday, June 1, members of the Marlborough Police Department responded to an emergency call at the Holiday Inn located on Lakeside Avenue. Uhlman was reportedly found with blood on his hands and arms in the lobby, as stated in the reports filed by the police and the records filed by the court. It is said that he let the hotel personnel know that he had just finished killing his mother.
The Westborough, Massachusetts resident Nancy Uhlman, who was 82 years old, was found dead in the hotel’s back parking lot by the police. According to the accounts, she was “laying on the ground with significant trauma.” She was pronounced dead at the site by paramedics who were with Patriot Ambulance, and her body was subsequently transferred by the office of the state Medical Examiner.
The fact that it was a homicide was established by the prosecutor, Megan McGovern, during the arraignment. Reports indicate that Uhlman, who had been staying at the hotel since the end of May, had asked his mother to come over; he told police he wanted to kill her. Uhlman had been there since the end of May. According to the records filed in court, Uhlman had taken possession of a butter knife a few days earlier with the intention “to stab someone in the area.”
After Nancy Uhlman’s arrival at approximately 10:30 a.m., the two of them spent some time conversing while smoking cigarettes in her truck. According to the court filings, Uhlman pulled his mother out of the driver’s seat of the truck at approximately 12:30 p.m., and then he pounded her head on the ground many times. He reportedly confessed to the responding officers that he had stabbed her around ten times.
According to the documents that were filed in the case, he got back into the truck and ran her over twice. After that, he navigated the truck to the front of the hotel and entered the lobby of the establishment. A forensic psychologist named Hilary Novak testified in court that Uhlman suffers from bipolar disorder and that he has hallucinations in which he intends to hurt himself or other people.
He entered a plea of not guilty, and the judge ordered that he be kept without bail. Uhlman was committed to Bridgewater State Hospital in order to undergo examination; the court has scheduled his return for June 21. In February of 2014, police in Westborough were summoned to a home on Haskell Street in response to a report of an attack that had taken place there. A number of injuries, including stab wounds to the head and torso, were discovered on Nancy Uhlman when she was found.
She reported to the authorities that her son Daniel had assaulted her, but he had gotten away from the scene. About half a mile away from the residence, he was discovered drenched in blood and wandering around. Uhlman was charged with assault with the intent to murder, assault and battery by use of a deadly weapon, and mayhem. All three charges were related to the same incident.
Uhlman entered a guilty plea in 2014, according to a report that was published in the Telegram and Gazette. He was charged with assault with the intent to murder, as well as assault and battery with a dangerous weapon on a person older than 60.
