Quinton Tellis

Prosecutors say Quinton Tellis, 29, doused 19-year-old former high school cheerleader Jessica Chambers with a flammable liquid, set her ablaze, and then left her to die beside her burning car along a back road near a north Mississippi tree farm. She died several hours later at a Memphis hospital. The main question investigators tried to determine early on in the case was where Chambers was between the time she was spotted at the gas station at 6: 30 p.m. and when fire crews discovered her on fire at 8 p.m. While they have not revealed anything specific, Champion said they have “absolutely filled that hour in.” The prosecutor has not revealed to reporters what Chambers told firefighters when they found her. That, along with other information on how that day unfolded, will be revealed in court.
