Kartel trial will stretch into next week


The murder trial of entertainer Vybz Kartel and his four co-accused will not end this week as Justice Lennox Campbell had estimated last week.

Yesterday, the jurors informed the court that they would only be able to sit during the morning session today and tomorrow.

Defence lawyer Tamika Harris has not yet addressed the jury and the judge's summation to the jury is expected to take at least three days.

Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, is on trial along with entertainer Shawn Campbell, also called 'Shawn Storm'; Kahiro Jones; Shane Williams; and André St John.

They are charged with the murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams, of Waterford, St Catherine.

The Crown is alleging that Williams was beaten to death at Kartel's house in Havendale, St Andrew, on August 26, 2011, over two missing guns.
