Mr Fraser had been due to appear at St Albans Magistrates' Court alongside his wife Teresa, a police officer, three days after he died.
The couple were charged in July with conspiracy to pervert the course of justice by allegedly lying to help Mr Fraser avoid a speeding fine.
At the time of the alleged offence, Mr Fraser was suspended from his post while he was investigated for suspected fraud and gross misconduct.
The inquiry centred on his alleged involvement in an overseas property business, in which investors reportedly lost money.
Mr Fraser's 42-year-old wife, a detective with West Midlands Police, is also suspended as part of the investigation.
As the force's assistant chief constable, Mr Fraser oversaw its performance on tackling and investigating crime.
