A pair of murder suspects in West Virginia were arrested Wednesday in Cincinnati.

Thomas Grantham, 35, and James Cross Jr., 32, are wanted for murder and attempted murder in West Virginia. Police say they were involved in an argument at a nightclub in Martinsville and followed two individuals down the street and stabbed them. One of the victims died.

On Wednesday night, members of the Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (SOFAST) and the U.S. Marshals developed information that Grantham and Cross were hiding in Elmwood Place.

Officers located the suspects in a residence on Van Kirk Avenue. They were arrested without incident.

They are being held in the Hamilton County Justice Center pending extradition back to West Virginia.
