Daniel Uhlman Obituary, Death – A former Westborough resident was accused with the murder of his mother. On Friday, June 2, Daniel Uhlman, 53, of Marlborough, was arraigned in Marlborough District Court. He was charged with armed assault with intent to murder a person over the age of 60, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon causing serious bodily damage, and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon on a person over the age of 60.
Marlborough Police were called to the Holiday Inn on Lakeside Avenue on Thursday, June 1. Uhlman was found in the lobby with blood on his hands and arms, according to police reports and court filings. He allegedly told hotel employees that he had just murdered his mother. Nancy Uhlman, 82, of Westborough, was discovered dead in the back of the motel by police. She was said to be “laying on the ground with significant trauma.” Patriot Ambulance personnel pronounced her dead at the spot, and her body was later taken by the state Medical Examiner’s office.
Prosecutor Megan McGovern verified the homicide during the arraignment. According to sources, Uhlman, who had been residing at the hotel since the end of May, had called his mother and told her he planned to kill her. Uhlman had grabbed a butter knife a few days prior with the purpose “to stab someone in the area,” according to court filings. Nancy Uhlman arrived around 10:30 a.m., and they sat in her truck for a while, talking and smoking cigarettes. According to court filings, at 12:30 p.m., Uhlman grabbed his mother from the driver’s seat of the truck and repeatedly pounded her head on the ground. He told officers that he stabbed her roughly ten times.
According to court filings, he got back into the truck and ran over her twice. He then drove to the front of the hotel and entered the lobby. A forensic psychologist, Hilary Novak, testified in court that Uhlman suffers from bipolar disorder and has experienced hallucinations of harming himself and others. He pled not guilty and was remanded in custody without bail. Uhlman was taken to Bridgewater State Hospital for assessment and will be brought back to court on June 21.
