AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Austin police say a man accused of killing a 27-year-old woman used a shopping cart to help dispose of her body.

Robert Sanders Jr. is charged with murder in the death of Tasha Morrison, who was found dead last month at an Austin homeless camp.

Detectives say Morrison was seen at a hotel less than a mile away from where her body was discovered. They say surveillance video shows Morrison entering Sander’s room, but doesn’t show her leaving.

Police say the video shows Sanders later going inside his room with an empty shopping cart and then leaving with a “large figure” appearing to be covered with a winter coat.

Travis County Jail records show Sanders was in custody as of Tuesday. Online jail records didn’t list an attorney for him.
