Twenty-seven-year-old Quinton Tellis, charged with capital murder in the 2014 death of 19-year-old Jessica Chambers, is set to begin his trial in Batesville on October 10.
Tellis was being held in Louisiana for a time, facing unrelated charges.
He was charged with the unauthorized use of a debit card in Ouachita Parish. The card belonged to a woman killed in Monroe, Louisiana. Tellis was not charged in her death.
Tellis is charged with capital murder for the death of Chambers, who was found burning alive on the side of the road in Courtland in December 2014. He was formally charged in February, while in custody in Louisiana.
