ALLISON Baden-Clay's husband Gerard has been charged with her murder almost two months after he reported her missing.

Police went to Mr Baden-Clay's real estate office Wednesday afternoon and took him to Indooroopilly police station.

After several hours of questioning at the station, police charged the 41-year-old with the murder of his 43-year-old wife.

He was spirited out the back door of the police station to avoid waiting media and was driven to the Brisbane watch house.

He is scheduled to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court on Thursday.

Mr Baden-Clay's lawyer said his client was "devastated" and he would "vigorously defend the charges."

 

Allison Baden-Clay - family statement

On behalf of Allison's loving family and friends, we would like to thank all the people who have worked so tirelessly in the wake of this terrible tragedy.

We are extremely grateful for the support of the community, the people of Brookfield, the SES and the police who have gone beyond the call of duty to find answers and help restore peace to our lives.

We love Allison and will always miss her dearly.

We have a long road ahead of us coming to terms with this horrific crime. We would ask everyone to respect our privacy during this very difficult time. The family will be making no further comments on the matter at this stage.

Thank you.
