KINGSTON, Jamaica — Jailed dancehall act Vybz Kartel and his co-accused are scheduled to be tried on January 21 next year in relation to the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
The date was set when the men appeared in the Home Circuit Court Monday.
The Crown said it is ready to proceed.
Kartel’s trial was originally scheduled for Monday, however the deejay’s lead attorney Valerie Neita-Robertson is currently in a murder trial of three policemen.
Kartel’s co-accused are entertainer Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell, fashion designer Calvin Haye, Andre St John, Kahira Jones and Shane Williams.
Williams was reportedly killed at Kartel’s home in Havendale, St Andrew, on August 16 last year over the disappearance of an illegal gun.
