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."
