Jessica Chambers murder case declared a mistrial after jury previously submitted incomplete verdict

After deliberating on Sunday and Monday, the jury could not reach a unanimous decision on whether or not Quinton Tellis was responsible for the murder of Jessica Chambers.

Originally the jury said they had reached a unanimous verdict of Not Guilty for the defendant Quinton Tellis. However, when the judge individually asked the members of the jury, the votes varied on whether or not they found him guilty.

The judge sent the jury back to deliberate further three times after after re-reading the rules for any decision on the case requiring a unanimous agreement. When the court resumed, a mistrial by way of a hung jury was announced. The state can retry this case.

The 19-year-old Chambers was found with burns on over 93 percent of her body after she and her car were set on fire in Courtland, Miss. in December of 2014. She died a few hours later at a Memphis hospital.
