A man suspected in another homicide has been indicted in the December 2014 burning death of Mississippi teen Jessica Chambers.
Quinton Tellis, 27, originally of Courtland, was indicted on capital murder charges by a special grand jury in Panola County as he sat in the Ouachita Parish Jail in Monroe, La., where he is being held on charges connected to the August 2015 death of a University of Louisiana Monroe exchange student.
Tellis is believed to have been the last person to have been with Chambers the night she was killed. The two allegedly had a relationship in the weeks leading up to her death, officials said.
While Chambers and Tellis were eight years apart in age, they both went to South Panola High School and grew up in the same neighborhood.
