Finally...a trial!   

http://www.clarionledger.com/story/news/local/2017/10/09/jury-selection-jessica-chambers-case-day-1/746423001/

Jury selected in Jessica Chambers capital murder trial
Published 4:06 p.m. CT Oct. 9, 2017 | Updated 5:01 p.m. CT Oct. 9, 2017

A jury has been seated in the capital murder case of a teenager brutally burned to death in Panola County almost three years ago.

Quinton Tellis is accused in the death of 19-year-old Jessica Chambers of Courtland and faces the death penalty if convicted.

Of the seven men and five women selected, six are black and six are white.

Pike County has a similar demographic to Panola, and jurors had to be pulled from outside the north Mississippi area because of pre-trial publicity. Court officials said the jurors were to be sent to Panola County Monday night.

There, in a trial expected to last two weeks, they will decide Tellis' fate. The trial could go through the weekend should the judge so decide.
 



I hope there will be justice for Jessica.  Such a horrible, horrible crime.

Watch Live: Jessica Chambers murder trial
Published 10:04 a.m. CT Oct. 10, 2017 | Updated 7:52 p.m. CT Oct. 10, 2017

 
The trial began at the Panola County Courthouse in Batesville Tuesday afternoon.

In opening arguments Tuesday afternoon, Tellis' attorney, Darla Palmer, laid the groundwork for presenting an alibi for Tellis with purchase of the pre-paid debit card.

Palmer also said the name Chambers uttered in her final moments points to someone other than her client. According to Palmer, at least eight first responders will testify that Chambers said someone named "Eric" set her on fire.

"'Eric set me on fire.' She didn't say any other name, she didn't mention any other person," Palmer said. "She said 'Eric did this to me.'...She didn't know the person's last name. She knew Quinton. Quinton Tellis is his name."

Prosecutors, however, believe Tellis is responsible for Chambers' death, pointing to a "number of lies" they allege Tellis told law enforcement in the months after Chambers' death as well as cellphone data they claim puts Chambers and Tellis together throughout that December day.

District Attorney John Champion said he believes Tellis and Chambers had sex in the passenger seat of her car before she was smothered by Tellis and then set on fire. He did not offer motive or evidence Tuesday that showed she was smothered.

Champion acknowledged Chambers said a name to first responders but said, by the end of the trial, the evidence "will change your mind, I can promise you."

After opening remarks by Champion and Palmer, Chambers' mother, Lisa Chambers, best friend Kesha Myers, passerby Glen Williams and first responder Cole Haley took the stand for the prosecution.

Who is Eric? Day Two in the Jessica Chambers murder trial
Posted 8:55 am, October 11, 2017, by Eryn Taylor and Shay Arthur, Updated at 06:58PM, October 11, 2017

BATESVILLE, Miss. — It was an emotional second day in court as several witnesses choked up on the stand recalling the night Jessica Chambers was discovered with severe burns to her body.

Seth Cook, a volunteer with the Courtland Fire Department, told the jury he was on duty and responded to reports of a car fire that tragic night in December 2014. He said when he arrived, he immediately noticed the burning vehicle and began assessing the scene, saying the fire appeared to be contained within the vehicle.

That’s when he noticed someone coming out of the woods 30 to 40 feet down the road. Cook stated he couldn’t tell who it was at first, but soon realized it was a woman who was unclothed except for a pair of underwear. Trance like, she was having trouble walking and had severe burns all over her skin. Some of her skin was already peeling back in some places.

Cook immediately got a blanket and helped lay her down behind the engine, then worked to contain the blaze.

When asked if he knew Jessica, Cook stated the two had attended the same school, but her burns were so bad he didn’t recognize her and was unaware she was the one injured until later that night.​

The second witness, another firefighter named Daniel Cole, went into detail about the scene, which he described as a “mad house”.

He said it was extremely difficult to hear Jessica’s breathy answers with the diesel engine and the shear chaos of the scene. It took multiple attempts to even get her name correct. At first, it sounded like she was saying Katina, Katrina or Courtney. Cole had to get down on the ground next to her before he heard Jessica.

When he asked who did this, they once again struggled through multiple attempts before he heard “Eric did this to me. Eric set me on fire.”

The victim’s family and friends were in tears as Prosecutor Don Champion showed one photo taken of Jessica’s injuries by the firefighter and another taken later at the hospital.

During cross examination, the defense asked about reports that a suspicious person had been on the scene that night. He confirmed he received the information along with tag numbers.
 
Thursday, the jury will take a trip  to see what prosecution calls key points in the case.

DAY THREE: Jury visits ‘key locations’ in Jessica Chambers case
Posted 5:43 am, October 12, 2017, by Eryn Taylor and Shay Arthur, Updated at 01:47PM, October 12, 2017

BATESVILLE, Miss. — It’s day three of the Jessica Chambers murder trial in Panola County, Mississippi.

On Thursday, members of the jury were taken to “key locations” in the area:

•Panola County Impound Lot: The jury was allowed to look over Chambers’ car, which Barry Thompson with the Panola County Sheriff’s Office said had rusted a great deal from being outside in the elements.
•Fire Scene: The jury was able to look over the scene. It was pointed out that a tree nearby has little life left because of the damage caused by the fire. It’s now adorned with a cross someone painted on it. Thompson testified Chambers was treated by first responders approximately 40 feet away.
•Herron Road: Only a few hundred feet from the fire scene, this is where Chambers’ keys were found. The defense questioned the integrity of the evidence since it had been moved by the man who made the discovery.
•Property of D. Cole: Jurors were driven to an access road that connects this property to the house where the defendant’s sister lived at the time. Thompson said there was no evidence Tellis was ever on the road.
•Otto Stanford Subdivision: Where Tellis’ sister lived at the time. Thompson stated again there was evidence that Tellis was on the road or at the house the night of the crime.
•M&M Grocery:  Thompson testified that there was a camera that was pointing toward Tellis’ driveway, but the defense quickly pointed out there were several areas that were not in view.
•Tellis Home: Across the street from the grocery store. The jury was allowed to walk the property and then taken to an area behind the home where Tellis had previously admitted to have sex with Chambers.

Jessica Chambers' burn injuries, suspect’s phone in spotlight
Published:Thursday, October 12th 2017, 6:20 am CDT
Updated:Thursday, October 12th 2017, 9:43 pm CDT

PANOLA CO, MS (WMC) - Warning: Video contains images that may be considered disturbing by some viewers.

The third day of Quinton Tellis' murder trial started with jurors exploring the area where Jessica Chambers was burned alive.

The jurors loaded into the three vans and explored seven different locations Thursday morning. They saw the area where Chambers was found, the M & M convenience store where she was last seen, and where Tellis lived. During the field trips, prosecutors and defense attorneys questioned an investigator about the areas.

After lunch, the trial moved back into the courtroom and featured medical professionals, including Regional Medical Center's burn center director, who said that he didn't think Chambers would've been able to clearly speak to first responders due to the extent of her injuries.

So far, testimony has centered around witness after witness testifying that Chambers was able to say her name and the name of the man who set her on fire, "Eric," despite being horribly burned and nearly inaudible
.

Mary Beth Hall, a registered nurse who was on duty when Chambers arrived at the hospital, was the first to testify Thursday.

Hall said she and her attending doctor did not believe Chambers would survive her injuries. Chambers was burned so badly her chest could not expand enough to allow air into her lungs. She was burned on 93 percent of her body.

Hall and the doctor began what they call "comfort care" with Chambers and her family. "Comfort care" is a process where the patient and their family is made as comfortable as possible until the end of the patient's life. Chambers died at 2:36 a.m. the same night she was brought to the hospital
 
Katheryn Rodgers, a forensic DNA analyst from Scales Biological Laboratory, took the stand next. She was asked to define DNA to help the jury understand the results of the laboratory results.

Rodgers said she analyzed Jessica’s keys that had been thrown in a ditch for DNA. She said their lab ran two DNA tests, autosomal (atDNA) and Y-chromosome (Y-DNA.)

She said she found Y chromosomes in the DNA samples on the keys, and she found four individual DNA samples with Y chromosomes on the keys.

Rodgers said the lab was able to obtain a DNA profile and Y chromosome mixture on the keys.

She testified that Quinton Tellis’ DNA was found on Jessica’s keys.

“Quinton Tellis could not be excluded,” Rodgers said.

The trial ended for the day around 7 p.m. and will resume Friday at 9 a.m.

Day Four of the Jessica Chambers murder trial
Posted 9:08 am, October 13, 2017, by Eryn Taylor and AP, Updated at 07:27PM, October 13, 2017

BATESVILLE, Miss. — Day four in the Jessica Chambers murder trial is underway.

Before the court proceedings started, the state revealed a piece of clothing and a bucket that was sent to the ATF for analysis was lost or went missing. They asked the judge to allow their expert witness, Matthew Simon, to go ahead and testify about that evidence even though it wasn’t in the courtroom.

The judge allowed the testimony
.

On the stand, Simon stated he was given a piece of material that tested positive for gasoline. The prosecution said it was a piece of Chambers’ clothing while the defense pointed out the item was so badly burned the witness couldn’t say with any certainty what it was.

Gasoline was detected on a piece of clothing found at the scene where a Mississippi woman was fatally burned, but other items submitted for testing didn’t have the ignitable liquid on them, a forensic analyst testified Friday.

Phones reveal timeline of Chambers, Tellis whereabouts
Published 12:43 p.m. CT Oct. 14, 2017 | Updated 8:48 p.m. CT Oct. 14, 2017

BATESVILLE — There have been questions throughout the Jessica Chambers capital murder trial as to whether the defendant, Quinton Tellis, was with Chambers the night she died.

In his first interviews with officials, he didn't mention seeing her after lunch that day. Later his story changed, and he said he'd met her in Batesville. The next story was that he had ridden with her to Batesville, and most recently he admitted that they were together at or near his house that night.
 
On Saturday, the fifth day of the trial, a federal intelligence analyst showed how the cellphone and video data told another story — one that said Tellis and Chambers were together when she was set on fire. Paul Rowlett told the jury that analyzing data can be like putting together puzzle pieces when you have 50 1,000 piece puzzles and no box to look at. It's a system of figuring out which pieces fit together and which could be eliminated, he explained.

The timeline could be considered to have strengthened the prosecution's case considerably as it shows Tellis and Chambers together through the evening of her death using multiple kinds of cellphone data, including RTTs, or "range to tower" information which shows a general location of where a Verizon user is. Another kind of data shows where a user is when his or her phone is active.

That data draws a clearer picture, tracking both Chambers and Tellis through that Saturday.  There's also the video from the M&M gas station, which shows Tellis when he visited the store multiple times that day. It also shows vehicles pulling in and out of his driveway at strategic moments, including one time prosecutors say Tellis was driving his sister's vehicle to a storage shed on his property where he told FBI agents he kept a 5-gallon gas can.

Chambers' phone stayed active during the time she was with Tellis because she was trying to reach a friend who had run out of minutes on her phone.

Testimony started Saturday with Alton Peterson, Tellis' defense attorney, drilling on the question of the name "Eric" in cross examination of Mississippi Bureau of Investigations Detective Tim Douglas. He also asked about other suspects in the case and whether they had been investigated thoroughly.

A minute-by-minute timeline of Jessica Chambers' final day
Therese Apel, The Clarion-Ledger Published 9:03 a.m. CT Oct. 15, 2017

In testimony on Saturday, federal intelligence analyst Paul Rowlett laid out a timeline of Jessica Chambers' and Quinton Tellis' moves on Chambers' last day on earth.

The timeline included cell phone data, security video, and phone and text records. To the best of our ability, here's a recreation from the 96-page Power Point slideshow that was presented in court by Rowlett.

12/02/14 - Jessica goes to the emergency room for some medicine. By his own admission and by telephone data confirmation, Tellis accompanies her.

12/03/14 - The first time Chambers' texts show Tellis asking her for sex.

"I'm horny," he texts, to which Chambers replies, "Oh Lord." The conversation continues, and Chambers points out that his mother and sister are home and that they would "freak out." Prosecution says this establishes that Chambers will not go to Tellis' home while his family is there.

12/04/14 - Chambers has broken the screen on her phone, making some conversations more garbled and stunted.

"I'm horny," Tellis allegedly texts again, to which Chambers replies once more, "Oh Lord."

12/05/14 - In a text conversation, Chambers asks for money to eat. Tellis responds with a sexual proposition. She tells him she only needs about $6. Minutes later, surveillance video at the M&M gas station shows Tellis walking across the street to where Chambers' car has come into view, and then he walks back to his driveway.

12/06/14

12:32 - 10:04 a.m. - Tellis is making calls that are bouncing off a tower in Pope, which indicates he is either at his home, or across the street at the M&M gas station.

8:55 a.m. - Tellis on video at M&M getting breakfast wearing white shirt and shoes and a dark dew rag and jeans.

9:01 - 9:02 a.m. - Jessica wakes up and sends a text. Cell phone data shows she is at her home on Carlisle Road.

9:06 a.m. - Tellis' mother's white Chevrolet Suburban leaves his house and heads up Highway 51.

10:04 a.m. - Chambers calls Tellis and the call lasts for 69 seconds.

10:08 a.m. - Chambers is on the cameras at M&M making a purchase.

10:09 a.m. - Tellis texts Chambers, "I'm ready."

10:10 a.m. - Chambers is on cameras at M&M talking to two acquaintances.  No one else is with her. She leaves from there and can be seen pulling into Tellis' driveway. From there they head south on Highway 51.

10:15 - 10:47 a.m. - Chambers and Tellis are driving circles on Courtland backroads.

10:18 a.m. - Chambers calls Kesha Myers.

10:33 a.m. - Chambers calls Myer again. At some point they pick her up.

10:47 a.m. - Tellis calls his sister LaQuinta Tellis.

10:49 a.m. - Chambers drops Tellis off at M&M. She and Myers leave from there.

10:55 a.m. - Tellis walks back to M&M and has changed clothes. He is now wearing black shoes, lighter pants, a red shirt and hat, and a plaid coat.

11:05 a.m. - 5:29 p.m. - Chambers is home. Tellis is texting, "I need you," to which Chambers responds, "What you need?" "Some lovin'," he replies. She answers, "Oh Lord. Can't."

2:21 p.m. - 4:23 p.m. - Chambers' phone is silent. Mother Lisa Daugherty says she was taking a nap.

4:23 p.m. - Tellis calls and wakes Chambers up.

3:24 p.m. - 4:15 p.m. - Records show Chakita Jackson, Tellis' then-girlfriend in Monroe, Louisiana is trying to contact him to get him to send her money so she can come visit him.

4:09 p.m. - Jackson texts, "I'm trying to come up. Call me."

4:21 to 5:34 p.m. - Tellis' phone is showing that he is at home.

4:23 - 4:29 p.m. - Chambers is trying to reach Myers, whose phone is out of minutes.

4:32 - 4:36 p.m. - Chambers tells Tellis via text that she will go get something to eat with him if he'll pay for it. She's still trying to reach Myers.

4:59 p.m. - A 33 second conversation between Chambers and Tellis.

5:08 - 5:11 p.m. - Tellis can be seen on security video walking to M&M, still wearing the red outfit. He paces around inside and stands outside, but doesn't make a purchase.

5:12 p.m. - Tellis walks south. It is dark.

5:20 p.m. - Tellis calls Chambers, and it appears from the length of the call she doesn't answer. She calls him right back.

5:24 - 5:30 p.m. - Security video shows Chambers is at the store. She talks with someone off screen, she picks up a penny, she goes inside and makes a purchase, she comes out and pumps gas.

5:29 p.m. - Both cameras and phone records show Chambers making a call to Tellis. She pulls out of M&M and heads south down Highway 51.

5:34 p.m. - Tellis calls Chambers back. This is the last call he will make for the next 48 minutes. He tells investigators in his last interview in January 2016 that he was calling her to come pick him up.

6 - 6:01 p.m. - Chambers phone shows she is on her way to Batesville.

6:04 - 6:11 p.m. - Chambers' phone shifts to the towers that cover the area of Batesville that includes Taco Bell, which is where Tellis told investigators they ate dinner. During this time she continues to try to reach Myers.

6:17 p.m. - Tellis calls his sister. Phone data shows he and Chambers leave the Taco Bell area and head back south. The phone switches towers during the call. It’s the only call or text by Tellis between 5:34 and 7:42 p.m.

6:22 - 6:25 p.m. - Chambers is still trying to reach Myers.

6:30 p.m. - Cell site data shows Tellis and Chambers arrive back in Courtland around that time. Tellis says they went back to his house. His mother's white Suburban is at the house. The area where he admitted to investigators that he had sex with Chambers is right behind the house, but can't be seen from the house. Her phone is also registering her just south of M&M, which is the same area Tellis described. Tellis tells investigators during this time the two are allegedly smoking marijuana in Chambers' car.

6:41 p.m. - Chambers is still trying to reach Myers.

6:48 p.m. - Chambers makes the last call she will ever make to her mother. The call lasts 76 seconds. Her mother said there was no background noise and no music, which was unusual and led her to believe Chambers was with someone. By Tellis' admission, he and Chambers were together at that point.

6:49 - 7:26 p.m. -  Neither Tellis or Chambers are using their phones. During the time between 6:55 p.m. and 7:41 p.m., five different women are trying to reach Tellis. He does not answer any of them. One of those was Jackson saying, "Oh well," presumably because she can't get in touch with him about coming to visit.

7:10 p.m. - A vehicle can be seen leaving Tellis' residence. He tells investigators that's his Uncle Sammy.

7:26 p.m. - Headlights appear and leave the driveway next to Tellis' house, the area where he and Chambers were supposed to be together. Security video is too dark and grainy to see what kind of car, but authorities point out that the woman who lives there is at work and Tellis' sister is inside the store.

7:29 p.m. - According to video, Tellis' mother's vehicle leaves the home, goes to M&M where she will stay for around 20 minutes.

7:30 p.m. - Chambers' cell phone patterns have shifted dramatically west. Then she's on the scene on Herron Road where she would be set on fire.

7:42 p.m. - Tellis’ phone "wakes up." He calls Chambers and leaves a voice mail. Then he follows with a text that says “Bae my friend is coming over tonight, I’ll call you tomorrow. Good night, sweet dreams.”

Tellis would later tell investigators that he was letting Chambers know that a girlfriend was coming over, and he named an in-town girlfriend. When questioned if that girlfriend would confirm his alibi, he changed his story and said it was Jackson.

7:46 p.m. - Tellis calls Jackson, tells her he is walking to his sister's house to borrow her Tahoe. Investigators point out that there is a cut-through trail that leads from where Chambers was found on Herron Road to the subdivision in which Tellis' sister lives. Chambers' keys would later be found in a yard along that route.

His cell data shows no communication to ask his sister if he can use her car, which investigators say he's only borrowed it once before when he took it to wash for her.

7:46 - 8 p.m. - Tellis' phone is silent again.

7:50 - 7:52 p.m. - A vehicle can be seen on M&M security video pulling into Tellis' driveway to a storage shed, and remains there for 1:42. Tellis told FBI agents in an early interview that he keeps a 5-gallon gas can in that shed.

7:52 p.m. - A vehicle can be seen on M&M video coming out of the driveway and it heads toward Batesville at a high rate of speed. Tellis told investigators in a later interview that it "could be" him going to get a Green Dot card to send Jackson so she can come visit.

8:04 p.m. - Chambers' phone's last communications ever with a cell tower. Investigators say it shut off when it got too hot.

8:07 p.m. - Phone call made to 911 by LaTroy Rudd and Glenn Williams, who see the burning car and call it in.

8:09 p.m. - Responders arrive on the scene where Chambers is found burned beyond recognition and her car is still on fire.

8:15 - 8:23 p.m. - Cell phone data confirms Tellis' story that he is going to Piggly Wiggly and finally to Fred's to buy the cash card. He calls Jackson during this time. Investigators say he called Jackson five times between 8 p.m. and 8:23 p.m. after having not spoken to her between 4:25 p.m. and 7:46 p.m.

In the video from Fred's, Tellis is wearing the red outfit but without the jacket.

8:26 p.m. - Tellis purchased the Green Dot card.

8:57 p.m. - Tellis shows up back on camera at M&M, and he has on white shoes, jeans, white shirt, and new lighter colored jacket. He later told investigators he took a bath before he changed clothes.

A man on the camera is telling a dramatic story, appears to be describing the crime scene. Tellis does not interact with him, does not appear to have any lengthy conversations at M&M. Tellis later told investigators when he walked back over to M&M was when he heard about Chambers' death.

Prosecution notes that in spite of being in constant contact with Chambers that day, Tellis did not attempt to call or text her when he allegedly heard she'd been hurt. Sometime in the days that followed, Tellis admits to having deleted Chambers' texts, calls, and contact information from his phone. The information connecting them and detailing their calls and conversations were pulled from Chambers' phone and Tellis' phone company records.

9:53 p.m. - Jackson receives the money from the Green Dot card. It's unclear when Tellis actually gave her the information.

Jury begins deliberating in Jessica Chambers murder trial
Therese Apel, The Clarion-LedgerPublished 9:13 a.m. CT Oct. 15, 2017 | Updated 6:49 p.m. CT Oct. 15, 2017

BATESVILLE, Miss. — Jury deliberations began around 4 p.m. Sunday in the Jessica Chambers capital murder trial, about three hours after closing arguments from attorneys concluded.

Quinton Tellis, 29, who pleaded not guilty to capital murder in the burning death of the 19-year-old on Dec. 6, 2014, in Courtland, did not take the stand during the trial that started Monday.

On Sunday, prosecution reiterated the timeline established through phone data and video evidence while the defense contended that failures in the investigation missed a crucial suspect — the mysterious "Eric."

Defense attorneys Darla Palmer and Alton Peterson hammered again and again on the fact that at least eight first responders said they believe Chambers said the name "Eric" in her dying declarations at the scene where she was found burned alive.

I stand with the girl, Natalee Holloway.

"I can look back over the past 10 years and there were no steps wasted, and there are no regrets,'' she said. "I did all I knew to do and I think that gives me greater peace now." "I've lived every parent's worst nightmare and I'm the parent that nobody wants to be," she said.

Jessica Chambers murder trial: Jury deliberations under way
3 hours ago
 
A second day of jury deliberation began Monday in the trial of a Mississippi man charged in the burning death of 19-year-old Jessica Chambers.

Jurors deliberated more than four hours Sunday without reaching a verdict at the trial in Batesville, about 50 miles south of Memphis
 
Prosecutors claim Tellis lied repeatedly to investigators about spending time with Chambers, a former high school cheerleader, in the hours before she was found on Dec. 6, 2014 -- presenting cellphone data to show their phones were in close proximity the night of the murder.

Prosecutor John Champion told jurors that Tellis mistakenly believed he had suffocated Chambers before lighting her on fire along a rural Mississippi road in Courtland, where she lived with her family.

But defense attorneys said Chambers told firefighters on the scene that a man named "Eric" set her on fire -- not the man charged with her murder. Several first responders testified that Chambers -- her lips charred and barely able to speak -- said the name "Eric" when asked who did this to her and did not provide a last name.

Chamber's friend, Kesha Meyer, testified that she had never heard Chambers refer to Quinton Tellis as "Eric." She also said Chambers was selling marijuana in the six months before she was killed. 

The state also relied on testimony from nationally renowned burn expert Dr. William Hickerson, who said Chambers would probably not be able to speak clearly -- given the soot inside her throat and severity of her injuries.

Law enforcement, including Mississippi Bureau of Investigation agent Tim Douglas, also testified that hundreds of Erics and Dereks were ruled out in the months-long investigation that led to Tellis' indictment. He said investigators pursued leads in places as far away was Des Moines, Iowa, and Chatanooga, Tenn.

Douglas acknowledged he spent "several days" interviewing a local man named Eric who had interactions with Jessica, but told jurors, "He absolutely was eliminated 100 percent."

Tellis could face life in prison without parole if convicted.

First returns not guilty verdict, but when polled, either 7-5 or 8-4 in favor of guilty.

Jury apparently misunderstood instructions. Have been sent back to deliberate more.
