At Long Last: Jessica Chambers murder trial to begin in October

Via Greg

The trial date for the man accused of setting a Panola County teen on fire then leaving her to die on a country road several years ago has officially been set.

Quinton Tellis’ trial will begin Tuesday, October 10.

According to detectives, Tellis doused Jessica Chambers with gasoline then set her on fire near Courtland, Mississippi back in December 2014. Chambers sustained burns to 98 percent of her body and died the next day.

Several state and federal agencies were involved in the investigation, but there were never any breakthroughs until two years later when authorities announced a grand jury had returned an indictment against Tellis.

  1. All I can say is: Let the punishment fit the crime. I'll even spring for the gallon of high test.

  2. Slow roasted or quick fried to a crackly crunch? Not all vermin walk on 4 legs.

    1. Reminds me of how they got rid of the dead, abusive husband's body in Fried Green Tomatoes. :)

  3. Will anyone in the NFL take a knee for this poor young lady?

    Y'all have a nice day.
