BATESVILLE, Miss. (AP) – The re-trial of a man charged with killing a Mississippi woman by setting her on fire has been set.

Panola County District Attorney John Champion said Thursday that the second trial in the death of 19-year-old Jessica Chambers has been scheduled for June 11 in Batesville, Mississippi.

Quinton Tellis has pleaded not guilty to capital murder.

His trial in October ended in a hung jury and a mistrial.

Prosecutors said Tellis set Chambers and her car on fire in a rural back road in Courtland, Mississippi, on the night of Dec. 6, 2014.

Firefighters found a smoldering Chambers walking near the car.

She had third-degree burns on most of her body when she died at a hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, about 60 miles (95 kilometers) north of Courtland.



  1. Why doesn’t someone kill this racist POS?

    I am sick and tired of being forced to pay taxes to feed and keep this human scum alive.

    Maybe he will do the world a favor and hang himself.
