A woman free on bail while charged with killing her ex-husband and dumping his body near the Wantagh State Parkway is back in jail again, this time accused of beating her mother with an aluminum cane.

Nancy Boland, 56, is charged with second-degree assault, said Robert Clifford, spokesman for the Suffolk district attorney's office. He said that about 10 p.m. Monday, Boland got into an argument with her mother, Marie Wieden, 83, at the Oakdale home they shared and beat Wieden on the head, face and arm.

Wieden was taken to Southside Hospital in Bay Shore, where she was treated for bruising and a broken nose, Clifford said.

Boland was being held on $50,000 cash bail or $100,000 bond.

Her attorney, David Besso of Bay Shore, said Wieden has an order of protection against his client.

Until Monday night, Boland had been free on $1 million bond after being charged with first-degree manslaughter in the death of her ex-husband, Walter Boland, 58.

In that case, State Police have said she stabbed him in the stomach at his North Bellmore home in November, drove around with his body in her Toyota and then dumped it on a bike path just north of Sunrise Highway, where a jogger found it.

Besso said his client had been staying in North Bellmore while she and her mother were renovating their Oakdale home. They moved back in recently, he said.

He said he had not spoken with his client since her arrest, so he didn't know what led to the most recent charges.
