The discovery was made when officers called at the Moyraverty Court property on Saturday afternoon. They were following up reports of suspicious activity at the house.
The body had been placed in a wheelie bin in a porch at the rear of the property.
The victim has been named as Owen Creaney, who was 40 and from Lurgan. Mr Creaney was disabled and used a mobility frame.
He was described by police as "vulnerable."
Two people - a 27-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman - were arrested on Saturday at the house.
They were taken to Lurgan PSNI Station, but have since been transferred to Antrim Serious Crime Suite where they remain in custody
Detective Chief Inspector Richard Campbell, from Serious Crime Branch, said that Mr Creaney had obviously been the victim of "a very serious and sustained assault" which resulted in his death.
He has probably survived for a period of time after that assault and has died at this address without receiving any medical attention.

"There was an attempt to conceal his body by hiding him in a wheelie bin in the address and I would hope that the community would be rightly disgusted by that - the fact that he was allowed to remain without any medical attention and then even after death, there was no respect shown to his body with the attempt to conceal it."
Detectives are appealing to anyone who either heard or saw a disturbance, or any suspicious activity, in the area between Wednesday afternoon and Saturday afternoon to contact them.
They also want to speak to anyone who saw Mr Creaney or was in contact with him between Wednesday and Saturday.
Investigating officers can be contacted by calling the non-emergency number 101 and asking for detectives at Lurgan PSNI Station.
