AUSTIN — A Seguin woman jailed in connection with the discovery of a man’s decomposing body last week in an Austin backyard appears to have at one time been involved in an abusive relationship with the man, according to a court document.

Last week, police arrested Austin resident Walker Kaatz, 22, and 36-year-old Kristie Cardenas of Seguin for their suspected involvement in the death of 32-year-old Nicklas Kinslow.
