MANCHESTER, Tenn. (WTVF) — Two people have been detained in relation to the death of a Coffee County man.

Coffee County Chief Deputy Frank Watkins says 30-year-old Sasha Payton and 20-year-old Tyler Carter have been interviewed in relation to the homicide.

Tesar was found dead in a camper on Birch Lane on Dec. 30.

The two were arrested in Oklahoma on a stolen vehicle warrant out of Coffee County. They are awaiting extradition back to Tennessee.

The Coffee County Sheriff's Department says they will consult the District Attorney's office on if they will face any charges related to the homicide once they get back to Coffee County and are interviewed in person.
