Vybz Kartel back in court charged with murder

LEGAL WOES: Vybz Kartel

DANCEHALL DEEJAY Vybz Kartel is expected to appear at the Home Circuit Court on December 3 in relation to the murder of a Jamaican businessman.

Barrington Burton died after being shot in July 2011, while he was in Walker’s Avenue in Gregory Park, St. Catherine. 

Kartel, real name Adidja Palmer, is charged with conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm and has been in custody since September last year. 

The 36-year-old Summertime hit-maker has been offered bail in the Burton murder case.

However, he has been unable to take it up because he has other cases pending in the courts for which he has been denied bail.
