Dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel and His Three Co-Convicts Have Filed Appeals


Dancehall Artiste Vybz Kartel and his three co-convicts have reportedly filed appeals against their convictions and life sentences. The appeals were filed in the Court of Appeal downtown, Kingston on Tuesday.


Kartel whose real name is Adidja Palmer, Shawn 'Shawn Storm' Campbell, Kahira Jones and Andre Saint John were slapped with life sentences on April 3, for the murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams reportedly over two missing guns.

Kartel is to serve 35 years in prison before he becomes eligible for parole. His co-accused, 'Shawn Storm' is to serve 25 years before he is eligible for parole, Kahira Jones- 25 years and Andre St John, 30 years.

A guilty verdict was returned for all four on March 13, ending 65 days of trial for the death of Williams, which police say occurred on August 16, 2011 at a house owned by Kartel in Havendale, Saint Andrew.

A fourth co-accused, Shane Williams, was found not guilty by the 11 member jury. ‘Lizard’ Williams’ body has not been found.
