PANOLA CO, MS (WMC) - The man accused of killing a Mississippi girl in 2014 will face a re-trial this fall.

Quinton Tellis' second trial on the case will happen September 24, according to District Attorney John Champion. Champion said the location of the re-trial had not yet been determined.

Tellis' first trial ended in a mistrial, after the jury returned multiple verdicts that were not unanimous.

Tellis is accused of killing Jessica Chambers. She was found burning alive next to her car in Panola County.
