    Another white girl meets a horrible death because she screwed
    blacks.

    A longtime firefighter said Wednesday he had never seen a victim
    so badly burned when he found a young Mississippi woman lying on
    the ground, barely able to speak, after being intentionally set
    on fire.

    Daniel Cole testified Wednesday about the death of 19-year-old
    Jessica Chambers at the capital murder trial of the man accused
    of killing her on Dec. 6, 2014.

    "She was sitting on a blanket. Her hair was singed ... soot all
    around her nose and her mouth ... blistering all over her body,"
    Cole, director of emergency operations for Panola County, told
    jurors.

    "At one point I even laid down beside her," said Cole, fighting
    back tears.

    Quinton Tellis, 29, is accused of killing Chambers, a former
    high school cheerleader from Courtland, Miss., who was found
    along a back road near a tree farm nearly three years ago.

    The teenager, who had been doused with a flammable liquid and
    set ablaze, was first discovered emerging from the woods near
    her burning car wearing only her underwear. She died four hours
    later at a Memphis hospital.

    Tellis has pleaded not guilty in Chambers' death.

    Prosecutors claim Tellis lied repeatedly to investigators about
    spending time with Chambers in the hours before she was found
    with burns on 93 percent of her body.

    But defense attorneys say Chambers told firefighters on the
    scene that a man named Eric set her on fire -- not the man
    charged with her murder.

    Cole as well as several first responders told jurors Wednesday
    that Chambers responded "Eric" when asked who had set her on
    fire.

    "I asked who did this to you. She replied, 'Eric,'" firefighter
    Brandie Davis testified on the second day of the trial in in
    Batesville, Mississippi.

    "She was a fighter. She was trying to answer questions. She was
    trying to tell us who she was," said Davis.

    Sandra Hailey, a volunteer with the local fire department, also
    recounted her interaction with Chambers whom she has known since
    she was a girl.

    "I bent down and I said, 'Honey, who did this to you?' And all I
    heard was Eric," Hailey told the courtroom.

    On Tuesday, during opening statements, District Attorney John
    Champion acknowledged that that's not the name of the man he's
    prosecuting, but told jurors he believed evidence in the case
    would "change your mind."

    The prosecutionís case will rely heavily on cell phone data that
    allegedly links Tellis and the victim on Chambersí final day.

    The horrific circumstances surrounding Chambers' death garnered
    national attention. The trial in Batesville, Miss., about 50
    miles south of Memphis, is the focus of tight security. The jury
    is being sequestered and spectators are being screened by metal
    detectors before entering the courtroom.

    On Wednesday, the jury was also shown a graphic photo that Cole
    took of Chambers upon arriving on the scene.

    Cole described being haunted by the image of Chambers -- her
    lips black with soot -- telling jurors, "I see that picture I
    took every morning and every night."
