And guess what? He is suspected of murdering another girl, too:
Tellis has prior convictions for burglary and fleeing police. He was released from prison in October 2014 — two months before Chambers' killing.More details on that crime here.
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. That indictment alleges that Tellis probably stabbed Hsiao more than 30 times in her face and body with a knife to get her to reveal her debit card's PIN number before killing her on July 29, 2015. He was extradited to Mississippi from Louisiana in June after pleading guilty to fraudulent use of Hsiao's card.
Undoubtedly, at trial, relative and friends will testify that they just don’t understand what set this “gentle giant” down the path of murder.
