SMITH COUNTY, Tenn. (WMC) - Two men are facing charges after a months-long investigation into abuse of a corpse.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation began looking into the case in June after a body was found near Seabowisha Lane in Lancaster. Agents learned the body of 19-year-old Cameron Wilson was left there three days before after being taken from somewhere outside Smith County.

A grand jury indicted 41-year-old Donald Lee Reynolds, of Antioch, Tennessee, and 31-year-old Justin Gage Cease, of Lexa, Arkansas, in September.

The pair was arrested Monday and booked into the county jail. Bonds were set at $50,000 for Reynolds and $25,000 for Cease.
