New court date for Kartel

Embattled Dancehall Deejay Vybz Kartel is scheduled to return to the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court today.

Kartel, whose name is Adijah Palmer has been charged with two counts of murder, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm.

Today it is expected that the 35-year-old deejay will answer to a charge of murder for the August 16 killing of Clive 'Lizard' Williams in Havendale, St Andrew. Kiro Jones also called 'Ray Jones' is also charged for the killing.

Kartel is also to answer to a charge of possession of ganja.

Last Wednesday, lawyers representing the deejay made a bail application on his behalf. That application was made in relation to the July killing of a businessman/promoter in Portmore, St Catherine.

It is alleged that on July 11, Kartel along with Nigel Thompson and Linberg McDonald killed Barrington 'Bossie' Burton of a Gregory Park address in St Catherine.

The deejay will however have to return to court on November 2, when a decision will be made on the application for bail.
