The Worlboss and Three Co-Defendants To Be Sentenced March 27
After spending two and half years behind bars, and beating the first of two murder cases, Adidja Palmer aka Vybz Kartel has been found guilty in the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams. He and his co-defendants—Shawn Campbell, known to dancehall fans as Shawn Storm, Kahira Jones, and André St John for the murder of Clive‘Lizard’ Williams. More Details and Video After The Jump…
After a 65-day trial plagued by delays and confusion—and capped by an emotional statement read by Kartel—the jury took only a few hours to reach their 10 to none decision. Despite the fact that no body was ever found, the hotly contested text message and BBM evidence—whose validity was strongly questioned by the defense—proved decisive. The dancehall star’s case attracted international attention, with rap star Busta Rhymes traveling down to Jamaica Crowds have been gathering around the Courthouse for weeks in anticipation of the verdict, along with a heavy police presence. There have been reports of bottle throwing since the news hit the streets that arguably the biggest star in current Jamaican music would not be set free today—or perhaps for many days to come. The sentencing takes places in two weeks. Meanwhile, Kartel and his family, friends, and fans have time to reflect back while reggae music ponders the road ahead.
