A man and a woman have been charged with murdering Annabelle Chen, whose body was found floating in a suitcase in Perth's Swan River.

A 68-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman have been charged with murdering Ms Chen, who was found on July 2 but only identified on September 5.

The 57-year-old's Melbourne-based daughter reported her missing after she couldn't contact Ms Chen for two days from June 30.

The divorcee had lived in the affluent suburb of Mosman Park since 1999 and was partly estranged from her large, extended family.

Police scoured Ms Chen's Meath Mews property for clues when they revealed her identity and said she allegedly suffered significant injuries.

The pair have been refused bail and will appear in Perth Magistrates Court on Thursday.
