COURT: Vybz Kartel
DANCEHALL ENTERTAINER Vybz Kartel is set to attend Jamaica's Home Circuit Court today (Jan 21) to begin his murder trail over the death of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
Also on trial are fellow entertainer Shawn Campbell, more popularly known as 'Shawn Storm', fashion designer Calvin Haye, Andre St John, and Kahira Jones.
Williams was reportedly killed at Kartel’s home in Havendale, St. Andrew, in August 2011, after he and another man were taken to the entertainer’s house to account for a lost firearm.
Police have reported that they have video and audio recordings linking Vybz Kartel, real name Adidja Palmer, and his co-defendants to the murder.
Officers also say they have eyewitness statements connecting the men to the crime.
The victim's body has not been found.
