The partner of dead Auckland woman Cissy Chen has applied for an adjournment of his murder trial.

Yun "Jack" Qing Liu, 57, was arrested two weeks after Chen's skeleton was found in a North Shore park in March, 11 kilometres from her home.

Liu appeared in the High Court in Auckland today charged with her murder.

His lawyer Michael Kan applied for an adjournment and said he had not received full disclosure from police.

Chen, a 44-year-old accountant, disappeared on November 5, 2012, after leaving the Torbay home she shared with Liu.

Liu reported her missing about 9.30pm and told police she had not returned from a regular walk along Long Bay Beach.

Extensive searches found no sign of Chen until her skeleton was found in the creek.She was identified through forensic dentistry.

The stream is fed by a pond in nearby Rewi Alley Reserve and meanders through Trias Reserve before crossing under Totaravale Drive into Totaravale Reserve.

Police have said they believed Chen was killed elsewhere.

No decision was made and Liu was remanded in custody.
