Controversial dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel and his three co-accused will have to wait another week to know their fate, after their sentencing was delayed yesterday.

Kartel and his co-accused Shawn Storm, whose real name is Shawn Campbell, Kahira Jones and André St John are to return to the Supreme Court on Thursday, April 3, 2014 for sentencing.

Presiding judge, Justice Lennox Campbell, put off the sentencing because he requested the defence provides certain information before handing down the sentence.

Folowing a very lengthy trial which began late last year, Kartel and his co-accused were found guilty on March 13, 2014, for the 2011 murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams.
