Three of his four co-accused, Shawn “Storm” Campbell, André St John, and Kahira Jones were also convicted of the murder of their former associate who went missing on August 16, 2011.

Police officers indicated yesterday that they will be closing several streets in the vicinity of the Supreme Court building in downtown Kingston.

Kartel fans protest 9

Officers say the road closures will be in place between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. today.

Earlier this week, a former protege of the deejay told Urban Islandz that fans will be taking the streets today to protest what they called an unfair trial.

The accused men are facing life imprisonment.

    I was a fan from when you Just start come round Bounty Killer – From when them love Agent Sasco more than you – from when Buju took away the mike from you and Killer say no Buju the youth a rising star – From when the Rasta & him crew from Waterford want to kill you and Bounty killer level it. – Until me live fi see you same one a try shut the general out of dancehall – Team up with Betweenie Man and a try style the man that accepted you when all of them rejected you – when none a them never want to voice you who deal with it fi you – And some fool a come chat – Youth If you never use people whatever difference you and Lizard have could have be resolved amicably but you alone care about your interest – Find the righteous path stop using people (look at what will happen to the Juror that is your fault) it is not too late and the lord just might find a way to get you out very soon at no charge – Just like how the Killa help you at no charge

    Jamaican people, fans, don’t mix it up. Never support a murderer! Fan or no fan. The victim could have been you, your family, any Jamaican. If any of you had murder anyone, you be in jail too. Forget this murderer. Blood is on his shoulder. Make sure he don’t kill anyone tomorrow.

    • Damion

      And you have proof of that because he sings a song about guns and killing to gain money that makes him elevate from poverty , so bring him down police account for the most murders in Jamaica

    JCF need to investigate all the gun mouth DJs, the ones who been bragging and boasting about murdering Jamaicans. There are lots of unsolved murders in the island. Maybe Jamaica can finally solve some of these cases by checking out every DJ who claim they kill people.
