Woman Sentenced For Trying To Profit Off Jessica Chambers Murder
By LocalMemphis.com | November 17, 2016


MS ATTORNEY GENERAL RELEASE

JACKSON— Attorney General Jim Hood announced today that a Blue Springs resident is going to prison for attempting to profit off the murder of a Panola County teenager by using the murder as a way to fraudulently collect donations.

Janet Lee Posey, 41, pleaded guilty Monday to one count of false pretense before Union County Circuit Court Judge John A. Gregory. Posey was sentenced to 10 years in prison, with three of those years suspended, leaving seven years to serve. Judge Gregory ordered her to serve three years of post-release supervision and pay $1,433 in court costs.

Posey was arrested in December 2014 by investigators with the Attorney General's Consumer Protection Division and the Union County Sheriff's Office following an investigation that revealed Posey had started a fraudulent internet scam after the murder of 19-year-old Jessica Chambers. The investigation revealed that Posey attempted to collect donations for the family without their consent or knowledge.

Heightened security expected for Quinton Tellis trial
By Donesha Aldridge | WJTV.com | September 21, 2017


BATESVILLE, Miss. (WJTV) — Security is expected to extremely tight when the trial starts for a man accused of setting a Panola County teen on fire.

According to WATN, Quinton Tellis’ capital murder trial will begin October 10.

Tellis is accused of murdering 19-year-old Jessica Chambers in December 2014.

The judge ordered jurors to be transported by buses from Pike County. They will be sequestered during the trial.

“There will be multiple officers there to provide any assistance this jury panel needs overnight. It will be around the clock security,” says Major Barry Thompson with the Panola County Sheriff’s Office. “There will be roving plainclothes officers inside and outside the hotel in order to stop any outside contact with this jury. They will be absolutely safe.”

There will also be heightened security at the courthouse.

This trial starts on Tuesday. I am looking for live coverage and will post by Monday night and/or the best source I can find.

Quinton Tellis is charged with Capital Murder but the prosecutor is not planning to seek the death penalty.

Tomorrow night on HSN, Randi Kaye is hosting a CNN Special Report "Justice for Jessica" at 9:00PM ET.
You can watch a 1:20min trailer of the show (after a 0:30 advert) here: http://www.cnn.com/videos/justice/2017/ ... railer.cnn

Verdict Watch

JESSICA CHAMBERS TRIAL DAY 6, LIVE COVERAGE: Jury ends deliberations for the night
By David Royer, AP | WREG.com | October 15, 2017


BATESVILLE, Miss. — Court will be back in session Monday in the trial of a Mississippi man charged in the 2014 burning death of a woman.

Jurors deliberated more than four hours Sunday before the judge sent the sequestered group back to their hotel for the night.
[...]
Firefighters testified Chambers told them someone named “Eric” or “Derek” set her on fire. Some first responders said Chambers looked like a “zombie,” with burned skin and hair, when she walked from a wooded area in Courtland, Mississippi, on Dec. 6, 2014. She died hours later.

District Attorney John Champion said Chambers’ throat was severely damaged and she could not pronounce the letter T. He said she could have been trying to say “Tellis.”

Before noon, the jury said they were deadlocked. The jury came back around 2:00PM with a verdict. The judge asked the jury foreman if it was a unanimous verdict. The foreman answered yes. The verdict form was all 12 jurors said NOT guilty. The Judge polled the jurors individually and there were 7 guilty, 5 NOT guilty. This was done in OPEN court, revealing each juror's votes. :eek

Today, the judge has read three quasi-Allen charges to the jury, sending the jury back to deliberate, the latest at 3:00PM. Mississippi does not recognize the official Allen charge.

Cathy, with LawNewz is reporting people are outside the courthouse shouting and yelling. Mostly wanting justice for Tellis, calling the judge a devil. :doh (ETA: this was a short-lived outburst by a few)

Not looking good. :roll
