A woman found dead in her Launceston bedroom is a murder victim, police say.

Detectives on Monday confirmed the case of homicide after the 49-year-old was found on Saturday.

A man, 27, and a 25-year-old woman from Germany, were arrested over the crime and the former has been charged with murder. The woman has been released without charge.

It's believed that a post mortem examination of the woman's body was needed to confirm the suspicious nature of death.

Investigators previously called for dashcam footage or witnesses who were near the property on Wellington Street.
