Vybz Kartel Trial: Defense Attorneys Continues Closing Statements
Vybz Kartel and his four co-accused are back in the Home Circuit court today for what could be the beginning of their final week in court.
Last week Thursday, Miguel Lorne, who represents Shawn “Storm” Campbell, started making his closing pitch to the 11-member jury. However, court adjourned on Thursday because one jury could not make it to court on Friday.
Lorne is currently on the floor making his closing arguments. He told the jury that lead prosecutor Jeremy Taylor is trying to cloud their judgement with a case that has far too many evidence of corruption.
Vybz Kartel, real name Adidja Palmer, Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Kahira Jones, André St John, and Shane Williams are on trial for the alleged murder of their former associate Clive “Lizard” Williams.
The Crown says Williams was beaten to death by the accused men on August 16, 2011 at a house in Havendale. His was killed over two missing guns belonging to the former Portmore Empire head.
His body has yet to be found.
