Adidja Palmer, Vybz Kartel’s government name, will be back in the Supreme Court in Downtown Kingston today for his highly anticipated sentencing hearing.
Vybz Kartel, protege Shawn “Storm” Campbell, and close friends Andre St John, and Kahira Jones were convicted by a 10:1 jury on March 13, 2014. The four men were found guilty for the August 16, 2011 murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams.
Justice Lennox Campbell postponed the sentencing last week after the defense complain that they did not get a letter sent out by the Supreme Court.
In court today both the defense and the prosecution are expected to give statements on how long the length of the sentence for the four men.
Justice Campbell is expected to hand down a separate sentence for each men based on the role they play in the murder.
The judge is also expected to rule on if Vybz Kartel and Shawn Storm will be allowed to record music behind bars. Proceeds from their recordings could also go towards the estate of the murder victim.
The men are facing life imprisonment for the murder.
