The defense attorneys will continue to cross-exam the witness in court today.

Vybz Kartel, born Adidja Palmer, along with protege Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Kahira Jones, André St John, and Shane Williams are all charged with the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams.

Chow testified that he saw the whole thing played out on August 16, 2011 at a house in Havendale.

Authorities say Williams was beaten to death over a missing firearm.

The trial was originally scheduled to run until Friday, December 6.


Lamar Chow told defense attorney Tamika Harris that he is not afraid of Vybz Kartel but rather his friends that he has around him.

Tamika Harris is the lawyer representing Andre St John in the trial.


Like previous attorneys, Tamika Harris also accused the prosecution star witness of fabricating the story to avoid a gun charge.

She pressed the witness to come clean about his story, however, he hold firm saying he is telling the truth.


Public Defender Earl Witter handed over a letter he allegedly received from the prosecution key witness in November 2011.
