ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say they've arrested the estranged wife of a University of Central Florida faculty member who was found dead in his home last month.

Jail records show Danielle Redlick was arrested Wednesday and charged with second-degree murder and tampering with physical evidence.

Winter Park police responded to the Orlando-area home in January following a 911 call about an unresponsive man. Officers found 65-year-old Michael Redlick dead when they arrived.

Redlick was the director of external affairs and partnership relations for the DeVos Sport Business Management Program at the University of Central Florida. He had previously worked for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Cleveland Browns and Memphis Grizzlies.

Online court records show the Redlicks had been going through a divorce.
