The mother of a cheerleader who was burned alive in 2014, has returned to the scene of his brutal murder while the suspect prepares to go to a new trial.

It's been four years since Jessica Chambers, 19, stumbled out of the woods near her hometown Courtland in Mississippi, after she and her car were set on fire.

He died shortly after his horrible injuries in the hospital, but not before calling his killer "Eric".

Now the burnt grass has grown back, and the burnt car has been removed, but the memories are like what happened yesterday with Jessica's mother, Lisa Chambers.

He returned to the scene for Oxygen's new documentary series, An Infamous Crime: The Death of Jessica Chambers.

"I used to come here a lot, I just felt like you could feel it here, I know it sounds crazy," Lisa said. "Jessica was last seen at the end of this road."

Now the suspect in his murder will face a new trial later this month after his first trial is over, when the jury could not decide whether he was guilty or not.

The biggest block that fell was his name. He is not called Eric or even Derek as Jessica told the first to respond before he died.

The man facing trial for his murder is named Quinton Tellis, 29, who had been dating the teenager at the time.

Tellis has always insisted that he is innocent, telling the police in the interrogation room, even after he was threatened with the death penalty if he went to trial: "I told the truth, I did not kill Jessica. heart kill nobody.

"I used to come here a lot, I just felt like you could feel it here, I know it sounds crazy," Lisa said.

His family claims that the police are simply looking for someone to blame in the case, which has become a very charged racial issue after Tellis, who is black, was arrested for the death of the cute white cheerleader.

The case opened a gap between people of different races in the small town of Courtland, which has a population of just over 500.

A friend of Jessica even claimed: "It started to be a racial war."

"I know my son did not do this, they're just looking for someone to put this murder on," his mother Rebecca Wright told Oxygen.

Jessica's sister, AJ Prince, does not believe in her protests, saying that she absolutely believes (Tellis) she did it, 100 percent & # 39;

But his mother is less sure.

She believes that anyone who can do this is a monster.

"This would have to be done by my one heartless, soulless person," he said. "Demonic in my opinion."

& # 39; If (Tellis) killed my daughter, I hope she burns in hell & # 39;

Lisa expects justice for her daughter and answers.

Tellis' mother, Rebecca Wright, said: "I know my son did not do this, they're just looking for someone to put this murder on."

& # 39; I've heard so many different stories. What really happened, I have no idea.

"I hope in the trial that they can shed some light on what really happened here because at this moment my heart hurts." It is a sick feeling. I need to know what was done.

Lisa shared her heartbreaking final communication with her daughter.

The teenager told his mother that he would go out and find something to eat around 5.15 p. M., December 6, 2014.

Lisa said she called Jessica while she was away to see what time she would be at home.

"I called her and she told me she would be home for a while, mom, but I love you.

"I told her I loved her too." She said, "See you in a moment."

"That's the last I heard from her."

The last time he saw Jessica was at the hospital. Her daughter had suffered burns on 98 percent of her body and barely clung to life.

Lisa admits that she was afraid of what she would see before entering the hospital room.

Prosecutors claim that Tellis had been bothering Jessica for sex and had rough sex with her in the car the day of the murder

"I took a look in the room," he said. & # 39; I do not know what they saw. But I saw my son. Maybe a rosy cheek, but I saw my baby.

"I took her hand while she breathed for the last time, I told her I was fine, that she could leave, the guilt I feel for telling her that I could … but I know I could keep her here.

The volunteer firefighters and first responders who found Jessica were shocked by the state of their injuries, and one even described her as a "zombie".

The injuries were so severe that another former volunteer firefighter, Eddie Eidson, burst into tears as he recalled the day they found the teenager.

"Looking at her, she had a piece of skin, every time she breathed, it came in and out of her nose.

"Seeing her as she was and staying alive, I do not wish this to my worst enemy."

He said that one of his fellow firefighters had asked him who had done this to him.

& # 39; She said & # 39; Eric did this & # 39; We were all a little dazed. "

The terrible circumstances surrounding Chambers' death gained national attention amid concerns about violent crime in rural communities.

During the investigation, the police interviewed several people named Eric, but none were charged.

After Tellis was arrested, prosecutors told the court last year that Jessica might have been trying to say another name, but that her throat and mouth were so burned that they only looked like Eric or Derek.

A burned doctor testified that Chambers had so much damage to his mouth, throat and chest that he could not say "T" correctly and say words while talking to the firemen.

Prosecutor John Champion said during the trial that Tellis thought he choked Chambers while they were having sex before driving his car to a secondary road.

Prosecutors also showed a series of text messages, which seemed to show Tellis, who was from the same neighborhood as the victim and attended her high school years earlier, bothering Jessica by sex.

After believing that he had strangled her to death, Champion said Tellis ran to her sister's house nearby, got into her sisters' car, stopped to pick up gasoline from a shed in her house and set fire to the car. Chambers and her.

Police said Chambers (left) was associated with Tellis (right) for about two weeks before she was killed, but her family had no idea who she was.

Prosecutors used cell phone location data and video surveillance videos from a store across the street from Tellis' home in an attempt to prove he was with Chambers the night he was burned.

During the first interviews with law enforcement officers, Tellis said he only saw Chambers the morning of the day of his death.

After being confronted with more evidence during another interrogation more than two years later, Tellis acknowledged that Chambers picked him up in his car around 5:30 pm that night, and said they spent about 1 and a half together, according to videotaped interviews.

Investigators concluded that Tellis and Chambers were together until about 7:30 p.m., and showed the jury a recording of a vehicle that appeared to be from Tellis's sister, stopping at Tellis's house at 7:50 p.m. and staying about two minutes before heading to the crime scene.

Tellis, who had faced life in prison without parole if convicted, told investigators he kept a 5-gallon container of gas in a shed in his home.

The trial was emotional, with witnesses who collapsed and spectators crying while the jurors showed graphic photographs of Chambers' burned stomach and face.

Eventually, with the jury unable to reach a verdict, the judge declared the judgment null and void.

Tellis will not return to Louisiana to face charges or an indictment until the conclusion of his case in Mississippi due to the extradition agreement.

Meanwhile, Jessica's family has only memories of the 19-year-old who was described as having "blue eyes, always smiling and the biggest dimples."

"Jessica was full of life, Jessica stubborn as a mule, Jessica was just a joy," said her mother, adding that she hoped to become a teacher one day.
