A South Australian man has been accused of setting fire to a pile of garden waste which four kittens were sheltering in.
Police allege that the woman was fatally assaulted with a blunt weapon.
Her husband called emergency services after he was alerted by his young daughter who came across her mother's body.
The street remained closed on Thursday as detectives investigated the circumstances surrounding her death.
Officers have combed through the family's two-storey home.
The woman's family is believed to have lived in the second unit of the shared building.
A neighbour, who spoke under the pretence of anonymity, told the Herald Sun the street is usually peaceful so she was shocked to hear about the death.
'I got home and there was police tape everywhere, I saw the garage door open and a big light,' she said.
'The street is usually really peaceful so this is a surprise.'
Police have not released a description of anyone they wish to speak to in relation to the death but have urged anyone with information to come forward.
