This has been an eventful confusing and chaotic day in a Batesville, Mississippi court room, to say the least.
At one point, the jury said they had a verdict. It was read, not guilty.
Then the judge polled jurors and 7 of them said guilty.
The judge sent them back at least three times encouraging them to make a decision.
They could not agree on a verdict so the judge declared a mistrial.
Jessica Chambers’ family is heartbroken.
They didn’t say much when they left the courtroom.
You could hear the Tellis family cheering outside the courthouse when the judge declared a mistrial.
We talked to DA John Champion who said he will re-try Quinton Tellis for the capital murder of Jessica Chambers.
It might be next summer depending on schedules but Champion says Tellis will stand trial again.
