Seamus McCollum, aged 56, died suddenly at Maine Nursing Home last September.
He had been a resident at the home on Ahoghill Road for nine years.
The death was reported to officers on Monday, 12 September 2011 and was unexplained at first.
But following a post-mortem and a final autopsy report, carried out by the State Pathologist, it has been treated as murder since March.
The woman, who was arrested in Antrim on Tuesday, was questioned by Serious Crime detectives before later being released.
