    The husband of a woman who was found dead inside a Brooklyn home Tuesday morning has been arrested in connection with her death, police say.

    Officials discovered the 63-year-old woman unconscious with head trauma in a house on Avenue J in Flatlands shortly before noon.

    Medical officials pronounced her dead at the scene.

    The woman’s 56-year-old husband was at home with her when cops arrived and was taken into custody for questioning. He was later arrested and charged, authorities said.

    Video from the scene shows investigators going in and out of the house. 

    The woman's identity has not been made public.

    It wasn't clear if Desmoulins had an attorney who comment on the allegations against him.
