    DENVER (AP) — A Colorado man suspected of poisoning his wife has been arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder.

    The 45-year-old Aurora man was arrested and booked into jail early Sunday, the Aurora Police Department said.

    The arrest came four days after the suspect, a dentist, drove his 43-year-old wife to a hospital because she was complaining of headaches and dizziness, police said.

    The woman’s condition rapidly deteriorated and she was declared brain dead a short time later. Doctors removed her from life support early Sunday morning, police said.

    Aurora Police Division Chief Mark Hildebrand said in a statement that it was a “heinous, complex and calculated murder” but did not release further details.
