JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The man charged in the burning death of a Mississippi woman could possibly be brought back to the state.

27-year-old Quinton Verdell Tellis is charged with capital murder in the December 2014 burning death of 19-year-old Jessica Chambers.

Tellis also faces charges in Louisiana for using the debit cards of a man who was stabbed to death in 2015.

Sources tell us extradition papers were sent from Governor Bryant's office to the office of Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards.

Bryant has requested Tellis to be sent back to Mississippi for trial even if he is convicted and sentenced to prison in Louisiana.
