He was taken to hospital in Taunton, Somerset, by police after his arrest on Monday amid concerns about a stomach complaint. He is understood to have undergone minor surgery and was discharged from hospital late on Tuesday and taken back to Melksham in Wiltshire.
He was being interviewed by detectives in connection with the discovery of the body of a woman at his house in Barnes Wallis Close, Bowerhill, less than a mile from the Melksham divisional police headquarters, where he is now being held.
A Wiltshire Police spokeswoman said: “Formal identification has now been completed on the body of a woman found in a house in Melksham on Sunday 13th January.
“The woman has been identified as Suzanne Bavette Newton, 45, of Barnes Wallis Close, Bowerhill, Melksham. Mrs Newton’s next of kin have been informed of her death and have asked the media to respect their privacy at this difficult time.”
An inquest is expected to be opened and adjourned before the end of the week.
