Vybz Kartel murder trial will not be over for another week

DELAYED: Vybz Kartel's murder trial will stretch into next week

THE MURDER trial of dancehall star Vybz Kartel and his four co-accused will not end this week as Justice Lennox Campbell had estimated.

Yesterday (Feb 25), the jurors informed the court that they would only be able to sit during the morning session today and tomorrow.

Defence lawyer Tamika Harris has not yet addressed the jury and the judge's summation to the jury is expected to take at least three days.

Kartel, real name Adidja Palmer, is on trial along with entertainer Shawn Campbell, also known as 'Shawn Storm'; Kahiro Jones; Shane Williams; and André St John over the murder of Jamaican businessman Clive 'Lizard' Williams.

The Crown is alleging that Williams was beaten to death at Kartel's house in Havendale, St Andrew, on August 26, 2011, over two missing guns.
