Here is a recap of what happened Friday:
An investigator says a man charged with burning a Mississippi woman to death acknowledged that he was with her on the evening she was set on fire after repeatedly denying it.
Mississippi Bureau of Investigation agent Tim Douglas testified Friday in the trial of Tellis, who has pleaded not guilty to capital murder in the death of 19-year-old Chambers.
Prosecutors say Tellis thought he suffocated Chambers during sex in her car, and then used gasoline to set her and the vehicle ablaze along a road in Courtland, Mississippi, on Dec. 6, 2014. She died at a hospital.
Douglas says Tellis was interviewed twice and Tellis said he only seen her that morning. Douglas interviewed Tellis three more times, and Douglas said he finally acknowledged that he was with Chambers in the hours before firefighters found her severely burned next to her torched car.
Tellis told an FBI agent he was miles away buying a deit card when she was set on fire.
