Tellis returns to court in August on second-degree murder charge

Quinton Tellis returns to court on Aug. 14 for a status hearing.

He was indicted on May 17 on one count of second-degree murder in connection with the 2015 death of Ming-Chen Hsiao, a recent University of Louisiana Monroe graduate.

The hearing follows a June 18 not guilty plea entered in 4th Judicial District Court

Randall Donald was assigned by the court to serve as Tellis' attorney on May 13, and Donielle Staten enrolled as co-counsel in June.

Assistant District Attorney Geary Aycock is serving as lead prosecutor for the case.

On July 2, the prosecution filed a discovery motion to inspect evidence the defense plans to use at trial. The state also filled the defense's motion for discovery on the same day.

Tellis returned to Ouachita Parish in February after completing a sentence for one count of unauthorized use of a debit card belonging to Hsiao after her death.

In May 2016, Tellis entered a guilty plea to the card charge in 4th Judicial District Court.

He received a 10-year sentence as a habitual offender and was transported to Mississippi to face one pending count of capital murder connected to the Dec. 2014 burning death of Jessica Chambers, 19, in Panola County, Mississippi.

Tellis was shipped to Angola on Oct. 5 following a second mistrial for the Chambers' case

Bond for Quinton Tellis, suspect in Jessica Chambers murder, set at $300K in La. case
Ashley Mott, Monroe News Star Published 10:03 a.m. CT Nov. 12, 2019

The man accused in the burning death of Mississippi teenager Jessica Chambers may soon be out on bond for a second murder charge in Louisiana.

Bond for Quinton Tellis, 31, was set at his most recent hearing in 4th Judicial District Court in Louisiana. Tellis is in custody in Louisiana after two trials in Mississippi ended in a mistrial. Tellis was charged with capital murder in the Dec. 2014 burning death of Chambers, 19, of Panola County.

According to minute filings for the Oct. 23 hearing, Judge Larry Jefferson reduced bond for Tellis to $300,000 on a second-degree murder charge and reserved the right to adjust bond again at any time in the future.

Tellis returned to Ouachita Parish in February after completing a sentence for one count of unauthorized use of a debit card belonging to Ming-Chen Hsiao, a Monroe, Louisiana, woman stabbed to death in August 2015.

Hsiao was a recent graduate of the University of Louisiana Monroe at the time of her death and was killed in a small apartment near the campus.

Tellis was named as the primary suspect in Hsiao's case in February 2016, and a warrant for his arrest was filed in July 2016
 
A status hearing for Tellis is scheduled for Dec. 12 and a hearing on motions is scheduled for Feb. 18.

Will there be a third trial for the Jessica Chambers murder case?
By: Tom Dees

PANOLA Co. - Two trials later and there is still no justice for the family of a North Mississippi teenager.

Jessica Chambers was killed nearly four years ago when she was burned alive and left for dead.

Lisa Chambers, Jessica's mother said that she would like to see a third trial, but she isn't sure that it would turn out any different from the first two.
 
District Attorney John Champion told FOX13 there is talk of trying Jessica's case a third time, but her accused killer Quinton Tellis is awaiting a completely different murder trial out of Louisiana where he allegedly tortured and cut up another woman.

"Just a lot of things when you get to this stage of a case can you realistically believe that you can prove your case beyond a reasonable doubt. The third time and it's just something we have got to look at," said Champion.
