Anil Gill, 46, of Beresford Close, Emerson Valley, Milton Keynes is due before magistrates in the city after officers found a woman in her forties had died at his home on Sunday morning.
Thames Valley Police say formal identification has yet to have taken place, but they believe the woman to be his wife, Ranjit Gill.

The £300,000, three-bedroomed semi-detached house has been cordoned off since the weekend, with a red Honda Civic car also behind the tape for forensic examination.
Police were carrying out house-to-house inquiries in the small close.
One woman said: ‘It is just a nice part of the city. It does not make sense to have three murders in this area in such a short space of time.’
Another neighbour said: ‘They have lived here for about 15 years. I don’t know their names.
‘From what I understand, it was the man who lives there who dialled 999.’
A third said: ‘They own the house, but people have not had much to do with them. I don’t think either of them was working.’
Another added: ‘I didn’t know them at all. I just used to see her in the car.’
