Vybz Kartel Found Guilty of Murder

Vybz Kartel

Dancehall star Vybz Kartel has been found guilty of murder.

Following a 65-day trial, the 38-year-old Jamaican, born Adidja Palmer, and three other men were convicted in the murder of 27-year-old Clive “Lizard” Williams, who was beaten to death at Kartel’s house over two missing guns in 2011.

According to the Jamaica Gleaner, the 11-member jury deliberated for nearly two hours before reaching a 10-1 verdict. The judge sent them back to reconsider before they returned with a unanimous conviction.

Kartel and five other men had been charged with Williams’ murder. Charges against fashion designer Calvin Haye were dropped in November, while Shane Williams was found not guilty at trial.

Earlier this month, Busta Rhymes showed his supported for his “#Twerkit (Remix)” collaborator by attending his trial.

Throughout his nearly 15-year career, Kartel had worked with superstars including Rihanna, Missy Elliott, and Pitbull.

He and the three other convicted men will return to court for sentencing on March 27.

    The main reason them fight kartel suh a cause him influence bigga dan di dutty politician dem a jamaica and most people weh a talk bout him fi guh jail neva did pree di case from day 1. Until dem show di body dem an some valid evidence mi seh him innocent,people fi stop judge kartel off lyrics an stop be hypocrites. When roger clarke lick dung di yute off di bike mi nuh hear dem bring so much scandal pon him not even court him nuh guh and di man weh drive the x6 weh shoot di yute how dem nuh send him guh prison. Atleast kartel a talk fi di ghetto yutes which artist a duh dat right now ”none”. Some a unnuh know di man innocent unnuh just a carry personal feelings and unnuh gwaan like badman song nah sing long before kartel born. Kartel a di voice of di ghetto dats y di ppl dem love him suh cause a him alone a attack di dutty government and police.
