Juror Dismissed in Jessica Chambers Murder Trial After Posting on Facebook

A juror was dismissed in the Jessica Chambers murder trial due to a recent Facebook post. The juror posted right after he was selected and then against Tuesday night after the first day of the trial.

The juror made a post late Monday night complaining about jury duty.


“Got jury duty am sequestered do 2/weeks murder trial sucks,” the post read.

Well, those details sound awfully familiar. Jurors in the Jessica Chambers trial were chosen Monday in Pike County, Mississippi, and are being sequestered for an estimated two weeks 200 miles north in Batesville (Panola County). The man’s account said he goes to “South Pike School District.” That’s in Pike County.

Facebook commenters quickly caught on. One woman wrote, “Send to the DA.”

“This Momma is on it!” wrote Lisa Daugherty, Chambers’ mother.

Jurors were chosen from Pike County because Chambers’ death got a lot of local coverage in northern Mississippi.

28-year-old Quinton Verdell Tellis is standing trial for killing Chambers. Prosecutors allege she was brutally murdered when he lit her car on fire.
