Vybz Kartel Murder Trial Hit With More Delays
Vybz Kartel’s high profile murder trial could be forced into next week according to information from the judge.
The trial was initially projected to be wrapped up last week in the Home Circuit court in Kingston, but was forced into this week due to lengthy closing statements from attorneys.

But on Tuesday, Justice Lennox Campbell says two jurors has indicated that they are only available in the afternoon on Wednesday and Thursday. This mean there will only be half a day of court sessions on these two days.
Tomorrow afternoon defense attorney Tamika Harris will give her closing statements following which the judge will give the jury its instructions before sending them off to deliberation.
This means a verdict could be reached on Friday. But if not the case will be forced to go into next week.
Vybz Kartel, born name Adidja Palmer, and his co-accused Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Kahira Jones, André St John, and Shane Williams are on trial for the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams, who authorities say was killed on August 16, 2011 in Havendale over two missing guns.
Williams’ body was never found.
