Vybz Kartel Slapped With Second Murder Charge

Vybz Kartel legal troubles are far from over. The Portmore Empire boss was slapped with another murder charge late yesterday evening.

According to a release from the Jamaica constabulary, detectives from the Constant Spring Criminal Investigation Branch have charged Kartel, born Adidja Palmer, and another man known as Kiro Jones, also called ‘Ray Jones’, with murder of Clive Williams, also known as ‘Lizard’.

Police officers said Lizard was murdered by Vybz Kartel and Jones on August 16th, 2011 in Havendale.

Vybz Kartel is schedule to appear in Court tomorrow to answer to previous charges of murder, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of firearm.

Vybz Kartel’s attorney Michael Deans, said the deejay “is shocked at these baseless allegations, but has the greatest confidence in the judiciary and the legal system.”

Vybz Kartel was arrested in Kingston almost a month ago and charged with possession of Ganja and later murder and weapon charges. The charges are in relation to the death of Barrington ‘Bossie’ Burton, a 27-year-old businessman/promoter of a Gregory Park address in St Catherine, who was gunned down on July 12 while standing with friends along Walker’s Avenue in Gregory Park.

In addition to the deejay, Nigel Thomas and Lainberg McDonald are also charged with Burton’s murder.

All three men are currently behind bars without bail.
