Jury Finds Vybz Kartel Guilty Of Murder In Jamaica
A long, and crazy trial has ended with bad news for dancehall artist Vybz Kartel.
Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer has been convicted for being the brains behind the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams.
The jury of eleven people took only two hours to deliberate after spending 65 days on trial. They returned with a 10-1 guilty verdict.
UrbanIslands.com got a quote from Kartel’s representatives that said,
“We will not sit by and let this case of injustice score victory. We will be appealing the verdict given the many questionable police corruption in the case.”
Just last year he was acquitted of being accused of Barrington “Bossie” Burton’s murder.
The alleged murder to Clive Williams took place on August 16, 2011 at a house believed to be owned by Vybz Kartel. His body has not yet been found.
His accomplices Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Kahira Jones, André St John were all also found guilty in the same trial.
Kartel plans to continue fighting to overturn the decision. He is facing a sentence of life in prison.
