At the time of her death, Ms Politkovskaya, 58, was investigating human-rights abuses in Chechnya and high-level corruption across Russia.
Dmitry Pavlyuchenkov is accused of following her in the days before she was murdered and giving a gunman the weapon used to kill her at her Moscow apartment on 7 October, 2006.
She was shot several times in the head, chest and shoulder at point-blank range.
Human rights groups and Ms Politkovskaya's colleagues at the Novaya Gazeta have criticised the slow pace of the investigation.
The case is one of at least a dozen Russian journalists whose murders are unsolved.
