76 year-old Charles Butler is currently being held at the Franklin County Jail. Officials say he is awaiting extradition back to South Carolina, where the body of his estranged wife, 66 year-old Andrenna Butler was found last Saturday.
Officials said there were no signs of forced entry, and nothing was stolen from the residence in Newberry, South Carolina.
Police said the couple had been married for more than 50 years.
