Day One testimony continues in Jessica Chambers murder trial

WATCH LIVE Opening Statements Begin In Murder Trial Of Man Charged With Killing Jessica Chambers

He said Tellis repeatedly lied to investigators about spending time with her in the hours before she was found. "Her hair was seared ... ash all around her nose and her mouth ... rankling everywhere on her body", Cole, executive of crisis operations for Panola County, told legal hearers. Quinton Tellis is charged in her death.

"Horrific burns", Champion said. As in the Chambers case, it is alleged he knew the victim before her death. "But Jessica was set on fire".

But a defence attorney said Jessica Chambers told firefighters who found her near her burning auto that a man named Eric set her on fire - not the person charged with her murder, Quinton Tellis.

Prosecutor John Champion told jurors that they will see graphic photos of a burned Chambers and they will hear from about 35 witnesses. She said her daughter took a nap mid-day on December, until being awakened by a call or text.

Chambers' friend Kesha Myers, one of five witnesses who testified on Tuesday after the opening statements, said she was with Chambers and Tellis earlier that December day, according to the Appeal.

"I asked who did this to you". When they found her, she had suffered burns on 93% of her body. Tellis then drove Chambers' vehicle with her inside of it to the back road, ran to his sister's house nearby, jumped in his sisters' auto, stopped to pick up gasoline from a shed at his house and torched Chambers' vehicle and her, Champion alleged.

Tellis' lawyer Darla Palmer was up next.

Mr. Cole and Brandie Davis, who is also a firefighter, said Wednesday that Ms. Chambers did indeed respond with the name "Eric" when asked who had set her on fire. As with Haley, Palmer made him read his own report, in which he wrote that the victim said Eric set her on fire, and that she didn't know this man's name. "She didn't say any other name". She said 'Eric did this to me.' ...

Palmer argued that the case is "full of reasonable doubt" and said evidence would show that Tellis was in Bateville, miles away from the crime scene, buying a pre-paid debit card to send to his girlfriend during the time prosecutors allege he was killing Chambers.

"One of the worst things you could imagine", Mills said.

Palmer also stressed the apparent discrepancy of Jessica's description of her killer.

Authorities have said about 20,000 telephone numbers were analyzed as part of the investigation, more than 150 people were questioned, and investigators traveled to Iowa and Chattanooga, Tennessee.

"I laid her down on the ground and she reached out for my hand", Haley said.

Quinton Tellis faces life in prison if convicted in the 19-year-old's death almost three years ago in Courtland, Mississippi, but has maintained his innocence in the case.

Tellis faces another murder indictment in Louisiana, where he's accused in the torture death of Meing-Chen Hsiao, a 34-year-old Taiwanese graduate student at the University of Louisiana at Monroe.
