Vybz Kartel Legal Troubles Far From Over, Video And Audio Evidence Dampens His Defence

Embattled dancehall star Vybz Kartel legal troubles grow deeper by the day.

The deejay and his co-accused Calvin Haye, Cayro Jones and protege Shawn Storm was this morning remanded back into custody after appearing in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court.

Shawn Storm is the latest addition to the growing list of persons close to the deejay to be charged with the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams on August 16th in Havendale, St. Andrew. Jones was not brought to court today as requested by the Magistrate judge earlier this week.

The prosecution has put an damper on Vybz Kartel’s defense when they indicated in court that they have video and telephone recording evidence against the deejay and his co-accused.

According to police reports, Williams was beaten, stabbed and shot by the deejay and his co-accused at his Havendale home, which was later destroyed by fire. Williams body has not yet been found.

Vybz Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, and his co-accused will spend another month behind bars before another bail hearing on December 2nd.
