More than 24 hours after Lesley Taylor, 64, was found dead and her husband Michael badly injured, Lotherton Way remains in lockdown.

Neighbours heard no screaming or yelling from the house.

They told 9News paramedics tried to resuscitate Lesley on the road, but she could not be saved.

"Just a really quiet couple," one neighbor said.

"Lovely lady, always playing in the garden in the morning before she went to work."

Neighbours say the couple had lived in the home for the past 16 years, with Lesley and Michael both working for the City of Joondalup.

Myles also stayed with them, while the majority of Lesley's family lived in New Zealand.

The investigation is continuing.
