Jury selected in trial of man charged with burning woman


BATESVILLE, Miss. (AP) -- A jury has been selected in the trial of a man charged with burning a 19-year-old Mississippi woman to death nearly three years ago.

WJTV-TV reports that a 12-person jury was selected Monday in the trial of 29-year-old Quinton Tellis. He has pleaded not guilty to murder in the death of Jessica Chambers. Tellis' trial begins Tuesday.

Chambers was on fire when she was found next to her burning car along a back road in Courtland, Mississippi, on Dec. 6, 2014. Chambers was taken to a hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, where she died.

The trial jury was selected in Pike County in southwest Mississippi because of pre-trial publicity in Panola County. The jury is being transported 200 miles north to Batesville, where it will be sequestered throughout the trial there.
