A 23-year-old woman and a 27-year-old man were detained at a house in Moyraverty Court on Saturday after the body of Owen Creaney was found concealed in the bin at the rear of the property.
Mr Creaney, who was 40 and from Lurgan, was disabled and used a mobility frame.
Police said he was the victim of a "serious and sustained assault".
The suspects were taken to Lurgan PSNI station before they were transferred to Antrim Serious Crime Suite.
Investigating detectives have been permitted by a court to hold them until Tuesday.
