Authorities say the 911 call was placed by Babu Natarajan, who allegedly indicated to responding officers that his wife had taken a nap because she was tired.

An autopsy determined the manner of death to be homicide and the cause was due to compression of the victim's neck.

Babu Natarajan was arrested on Wednesday and charged with murder.

He is being held at the Burlington County Jail in Mount Holly pending a detention hearing in Superior Court.
