Suspect Indicted In Burning Death Of Jessica Chambers

A Mississippi man has been indicted in connection with the burning death of 19-year-old Jessica Chambers.

Quinton Tellis, 27, was indicted on capital murder charges by a special grand jury on February 23, according to The Clarion-Ledger.

Jessica Chambers was found on a back road on December 6, 2014, with roughly 98 percent of her body covered in burns. She was able to say a few words to emergency responders as she was taken away from her burning vehicle.

Chambers later died from her wounds at a Memphis hospital. 

Authorities believe Tellis is the last person seen with Chambers on the night she was killed.

Tellis is currently being held in the Ouachita Parish Jail in Monroe, Louisiana in connection with the death of a University of Louisiana Monroe exchange student, Meing-Chen Hsiao, in August 2015.

Police say he admitted to using Hsiao’s debit card before she was found stabbed to death in her apartment on August 8. Tellis has not been formally charged for Hsiao’s murder.

According to the Clarion-Ledger, Tellis has previously served time for charges of fleeing law enforcement and residential burglary.
