Vybz Kartel pleads NOT GUILTY case continues today

KINGSTON, Jamaica – The murder trial involving embattled dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel continues this afternoon when the remaining jurors are expected to be selected.

So far, nine jurors — five males and four females — have been selected by defence attorneys and the prosecution, which is being led by Jeremy Taylor.


Vybz Kartel, whose real name is Adidjah Palmer; Shawn ‘Storm’ Campbell; Kahira Jones; André St John; stylist Calvin ‘Moonie’ Haye; and Shane Williams are charged with the 2011 murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams in Havendale, St Andrew.

Williams’ body has not been found.

In July, Kartel and two co-accused were freed of another murder charge relating to the shooting death of Portmore resident Barrington ‘Bossie’ Bryan.
