Prosecutors in the murder case against embattled Dancehall superstar, Adidja “Vybz Kartel” Palmer are implying that they have incriminating evidence against the prominent deejay.
Kartel was remanded when he appeared in the Gun Court section of the Corporate Area Resident Magistrates Court on Thursday. He will remain in police custody until December 2nd when bail applications will once again be made.
Additionally, Kartel’s designer/booking agent, Calvin “Moonie” Haye, entourage member, Kiro “Ray” Jones and fellow Portmore Empire deejay, Shawn Campbell aka Shawn Storm were also remanded during the court session. Haye and Jones were charged for murder last week while Shawn Storm was officially charged this week.
The prosecution in Kartel’s murder trial insists that they have video evidence and taped phone conversations at their disposal that could potentially help their case against the internationally acclaimed artiste.
It is alleged that Kartel, Haye, Jones and Shawn Storm were involved in the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams in August. According to police, Kartel engaged in a dispute with Williams regarding a missing, illegal firearm. Williams was then taken to a residence in Havendale, St. Andrew where he was beaten and stabbed to death.
Kartel is also facing a murder charge stemming from the shooting death of Barrington “Bossie” Burton, 27, a businessman/promoter from Gregory Park, St. Catherine.
