The said juror will also be absent from court tomorrow and Wednesday is a public holiday in Jamaica.

On Thursday, Justice Lennox Campbell will issue jury instructions before sending off the 11 jurors to deliberate and return a verdict.

Vybz Kartel, born Adidja Palmer, Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Kahira Jones, André St John, and Shane Williams are jointly charged for the murder of their former associate Clive “Lizard” Williams.

The Crown says Williams was beaten to death by the accused men on August 16, 2011 at the dancehall star’s house in Havendale.

Authorities says he was killed over two missing firearms owned by Kartel.

His body has yet to be found.
