Vybz Kartel, born Adidja Palmer, was sentenced to 35 years to life imprisonment for the August 16, 2011 murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams.

Shawn Storm, real name Shawn Campbell, was sentenced to life also but will be eligible for parole in 25 years.

The other two men Kahira Jones and Andre St John were given 25 and 30 years respectively before being eligible for parole.

In his handwritten note, Vybz Kartel says he did not kill Clive Williams.

“I would first like to again reiterate that I never killed Clive Williams nor did I order his killing,” the statement reads. “To my family I want to say thank you for being there for me. Equally to my fans whose unremitting support matters to me! Bless, Kartel.”

    • disqus_TJ0A2BBCkN

      Mr. Tyndall PLEASE stop referring to persons on here as apes , one of the things I do for a living is IQ testing and my experience with persons with high IQs is that they express themselves in an elevated way. Your moronic, degenerative, uncouth style is unethical and unacceptable. Since you hate black people so much go join the KKK and leave us alone.

      • John Tyndall

        I refer to as apes as long we as whites rule this world and your kind keep killing each other and not being united which works to our benefit when you stop doing that I wouldn’t to your kind as ape

  • Burn gaza

    Lol mi haffi burn out daddy devil everyday

  • Elaine Douglas

    Who killed lizard

    • Ross Margarette

      The jamaican police force

  • Karen

    The Key evidence was the voice notes that the prosecution relied on to convict Kartel. Kartel didn’t deny it was his voice saying the gruesome, graphic details of Lizards tragic ending (if he is dead). The reason why Lizard is dead in the eyes of the law is because of the blood, other supporting evidence, and especially the voice notes recorded by Kartel. If Lizard was killed the way Kartel said he was than the sentencing is not harsh. Lizards family doesn’t even have a body to cry over and give a decent funeral. I’m not saying Kartel is guilty but if the voice recordings are true, Lizard’s death was gruesome and the disrespect for his body is truly unacceptable! The sentence fits the crime. If Kartel and his friends are innocent they will be set free. If the authorities find out who killed Lizard than that criminal should get 35 yrs also. The sentence is about the crime and the brutal intent, not about Kartel. The judge definitely sent that message.
