MONROE, LA (WMC) -

The man accused of murdering 19-year-old Jessica Chambers pleaded guilty to an unrelated investigation in Louisiana.

Panola County District Attorney John Champion said 27-year-old Quinton Tellis pleaded guilty to using the credit cards of a University of Louisiana Monroe student after she was found dead. He has not been charged in her murder.

The guilty plea could mean that Tellis will be extradited to Mississippi soon to face a judge in the Jessica Chambers case.

Chambers and her car were set on fire in December 2014 in Courtland, Mississippi. She died shortly afterward.
