Westborough man charged with stabbing mother


WESTBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- A Westborough man charged with repeatedly stabbing his 72-year-old mother has been ordered held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing.

Daniel Uhlman was arraigned Friday on several charges including attempted murder.

The dangerousness hearing was scheduled for Wednesday.

Authorities say he used four kitchen knives to stab his mother in the head and torso Thursday night in the home they share.
