State police have charged a Windham man in connection with the fatal shooting of his wife at their home.

State police spokesman Stephen McCausland says 33-year-old Noah Gaston was arrested Friday and charged with murder. His wife, 34-year-old Alicia Gaston, died from a shotgun blast just before dawn on Jan. 14. 

Authorities say the couple’s three children were at home at the time and are now staying with relatives.

Gaston was taken to the Cumberland County Jail in Portland, where he is being held without bail.

He will make his first court appearance either Monday or Tuesday. It wasn’t immediately known if he has a lawyer.
