A North Bellmore woman has admitted to stabbing her ex-husband to death and dumping his body on the side of a road following an argument in 2011.

Nancy Boland pleaded guilty Tuesday at Nassau County court to first-degree manslaughter, criminal contempt, tampering with physical evidence and criminal possession of a weapon

Prosecutors said the 57-year-old woman and her ex-husband, Walter Boland, with whom she still lived on Waltoffer Avenue, got into an argument on Nov. 16, 2011. The fight escalated when she claimed that he threatened her with a sharp-bladed instrument.

“Nancy Boland said that she grabbed it out his hand and stabbed him with it once in the abdomen, driving it upward and four inches deep,” the district attorney’s office said in a news release.

The victim, who had a valid order of protection against his ex-wife, refused to be taken to the hospital, according to Nancy Boland’s statement to police.

She left him at home to go to work the following day but when she returned home, she found her ex-husband unresponsive. Once she concluded that he was dead, she dragged his body to her mother’s car and dumped his body on the Wantagh State Parkway bike path north of Sunrise Highway.

Nancy Boland had told family, friends and co-workers that he had left after the fight and hadn’t returned.  A jogger found the body the morning of Nov. 18, 2011.

Nancy Boland is expected to be sentenced March 13 to seven years in prison.
