NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Police have arrested two suspects in the partial decapitation of a man in East Nashville.

According to the Metro Nashville Police Department, a resident found Tremayne Cross lying next to a dumpster on the 400 block of South 4th Street around 1:45 a.m. Thursday with a severe neck laceration. He was bleeding profusely. 

Cross, 45, was taken to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he died during surgery.

The two suspects, 31-year-old Lewis Shuler and 25-year-old Tiffany Biggs, were booked into the Metro jail on Friday morning. They are both being held on $1 million bond.

According to police, Cross lived near Shuler and Biggs in the J.C. Napier public housing development. He reportedly left with them in a Dodge Charger around 1 a.m. Thursday. Police said they drove to the intersection of South 4th Street and Shelby Avenue, which is where Cross was later found.

Police said they believe the suspects returned to J.C. Napier before driving the car to Mildred Shute Avenue, which is where it was later set on fire. Investigators found the car on Thursday.
