Vybz Kartel Found Guilty of Murder
Jamaican songwriter and dancehall artist Vybz Kartel has been convicted of the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams.
Clive’s murder allegedly took place at Vybz’s home in Havendale, St Andrew. His body has yet been found. An eleven-member jury decided the fate of Vybz and his associates Shawn Campbell (a.k.a. Shawn Storm), Kahira Jones and Andre St. John, all whom were also found guilty in the brutal killing. A fourth associate, Shane Williams, was the only accused to be found not guilty.
The 65-day trial was the longest running criminal hearing in the history of Jamaica’s circuit court system, local media reported.
Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, is one of the biggest names in Jamaican dancehall reggae. The self-proclaimed “Wurl Boss” will be given a sentence in court on March 27, but his lawyers have said that they are planning to appeal the verdict.
