MONROE, La. (AP) — A Louisiana judge has set a bond for a man facing a murder charge in the stabbing death of a Taiwanese woman.
Quinton Tellis is the same man who was tried twice for murder but never convicted in the Mississippi burning death of 19-year-old Jessica Chambers.
The Monroe News Star reported Monday that Tellis was initially held without bond on a second-degree murder charge in the 2015 stabbing of Ming-Chen Hsiao. Tellis pleaded guilty in 2016 to unauthorized use of her debit card, but has pleaded not guilty to murder.
The newspaper said the judge set his bond at $300,000 on Oct. 23, and Tellis remains in Ouachita Parish custody.
Tellis was tried in Mississippi in 2017 and 2018 on capital murder charges in Chambers' slaying. Both juries deadlocked.
