Speaking with Irie FM, Maureen Nelson says the dancehall deejay’s family is deeply hurt by the conviction.

“We are a strong family, we are very strong and our parents brought us up to be strong individuals, but we are hurting,” Nelson said.

She also said statements being made in the media are also causing the family more grief.

“The conviction is one but the comments that you hear in the media I think that is the most hurtful part and if he is hearing any of it as a human being I am sure he is hurting because it is sad some of the criticisms we have read and heard,” Nelson added.

Vybz Kartel will be back in court this Thursday for his delayed sentencing hearing.

All four men are facing life imprisonment for the murder.

      • Porchia

        And why should it be any different. ..have you not been following the case or are you just concentrating on the fact that the police tampered with the phone and whatever else you thank may have been tampered with…have you stopped to think maybe kartel paid for the tampering hoping that it would help his case….have you not heard the main witness said that when he left kartels house to attend the hospital with kartel to seek medical attention for the dog bite he left lizard motionless body in the house…also the text evidence….kartel is an accomplice in all of this and enough evidence to convict the lot…..wake up and accept

      • Rian Brown

        Believe what you want and I’ll believe what I want why does it bother you so much that I see this as a shady case you need to accept that some people believe that he’s not guilty and some don’t then you have people like me who don’t know what to believe I can understand if you enjoy bashing people and acting tuff behind your computer maybe it makes you feel better about yourself maybe you have women or maybe you have no women at all I don’t know reply all you want I don’t care

    Listen everyone NYC one knows everything he is right and you are all wrong he is so cool that he gets back stage passes so for everyone who thinks kartel is innocent well he’s not because the system and NYC one said so

  • IMHO

    Big Sis, he was sent to jail, not heaven. No one expects the family to celebrate. And suppose you hear what they are saying about Cilve, he was nobody so your brother shouldn’t be tried for killing. How do you think his family feels.
