Jury retires to consider verdict in Vybz Kartel Trial

The jury has retired in the Vybz Kartel murder trial to consider a verdict.

The 11-member jury was sent out at 3:45 p.m.

Earlier, Justice Lennox Campbell, the judge presiding at the Vybz Kartel murder trial met with lawyers in the case.

Campbell was expected to resume his summation at 2 o’clock when the recess ended.

However, when the judge entered the courtroom, he instead said he wanted to meet with the lawyers in chambers.

Earlier this afternoon, there was chaos outside the Supreme Court building on King Street when hundreds of Vybz Kartel supporters broke through human barriers formed by police personnel on King Street and went on to Barry Street.

It is understood that the large crowd descended on areas cordoned off by the police after international entertainer Busta Rhymes made his way to the court.

Some people including school children chanted "Free Kartel" and "Free Worl Boss".

Road closures around the Supreme Court took effect this morning in anticipation of a verdict in the Vybz Kartel murder case.

Kartel and four co-accused are on trial for the August 2011 murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
