Embattled Dancehall superstar, Adidja ‘Vybz Kartel’ Palmer faces a very tense return to court next month when the Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams trial is expected to commence.
According to several reports, the prosecution in the Williams murder case will call on a ‘star witness’ who could cause big problems for Kartel and his defense team. The witness, whose name has been withheld for safety reasons, is allegedly the other man that was taken to a Havendale residence alongside Williams as they were made to answer queries regarding some missing, illegal guns.
Reports state the witness was supposed to be killed alongside Williams that day in August 2011 when the murder took place. However, he escaped harm.
The Crown insists they have evidence proving their witness was at the Havendale home during Williams’ killing. Williams was allegedly beaten to death after he was unable to answer questions surround the missing guns, with Kartel along with Calvin ‘Moonie’ Haye, Kahira Jones, Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell and Shane Williams all accused of participating in his death.
Vybz Kartel and the co-accused are expected to stand trial in the Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams matter on January 21, 2013. The entertainer remains housed at the Horizon Remand Centre in Spanish Town as he also faces a conspiracy charge pertaining to the case as well as a separate charges in relation to another murder case.
