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.
