JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- A Tennessee man has been arrested on suspicion of mutilating and killing a woman at a casino hotel in north Mississippi.
Sheriff's deputies went to Hollywood Casino's hotel at 5:52 a.m. Thursday after receiving reports of a disturbance in a room.
Sheriff K.C. Hamp says in a news release that deputies secured the first-floor room, when the suspect, 34-year-old Nathaniel Yates III, jumped through the glass window. A deputy shocked him with a stun gun.
Brandi Nicole Floyd, 25, was found on the floor and later died. Yates and Floyd are both from Collierville, Tenn.
Authorities say Floyd was mutilated, but didn't elaborate.
Tunica County spokesman Larry Liddell said Yates was taken to Baptist Memorial Hospital-Desoto for treatment for cuts and bruises from jumping through the window.
