Ms Browning, of Miltons Crescent, Ockford Ridge, Godalming, will appear at Guildford Crown Court on Tuesday.
She is accused of killing him between 9 September and 6 October. A body was found in Miltons Crescent on Friday.
It has not yet been formally identified and a post-mortem examination carried out on Friday was inconclusive.

A 30-year-old man also arrested in connection with the investigation has been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
