After a 65-day trial, Vybz Kartel has been convicted of murder.
Dancehall star Vybz Kartel was found guilty of murder on Thursday afternoon.
After a trial that had lasted 65 days, Vybz Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, was convicted of being behind the murder of Clive "Lizard" Williams. Three other men were also convicted in the murder of the 27 year old Williams, who had been beaten to death at Kartel’s house over two missing guns back 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. He and the three other convicted men will return to court for sentencing on March 27.
