Police believe Nancy Boland stabbed her husband Walter and later dumped his body near the Wantagh State Parkway.
A Long Island woman has been charged with fatally stabbing her ex-husband, then dumping his body off a Long Island parkway.
The victim, Walter J. Boland, 58, of North Bellmore, was found Friday morning near a bicycle path adjacent to the parkway.
Police said Saturday they arrested Nancy Boland, his 56-year-old ex-wife.
An autopsy performed by the Nassau County Medical Examiner determined the cause of death to be a single stab wound to the lower abdomen.
Investigators believe Boland stabbed her ex-husband and dumped his body along the Wantagh Parkway.
His body was discovered 8 a.m Friday by a jogger running on the path.
Boland was arrested by State Police and charged with manslaughter, criminal possession of a weapon, and tampering with physical evidence.
The lawyer who represented her at the arraignment, Lisa Annibale, didn't immediately return a phone message.
