Kartel trial: Witness accused of misleading court
Texts about Lizzy were referring to Shawn Storm’s daughter.
KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Defence in the Vybz Kartel murder trial have accused Crown witness Corporal Shawn Brown of deliberately attempting to mislead the court by presenting selected cell phone texts by a co-accused.
Defence attorney Tom Tavares-Finson suggested Thursday that the witness abstracted texts from a series sent by co-accused Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell which gave the impression that Campbell was referring to victim Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
One of Shawn Storm’s text presented as evidence to the court read: “How much for the thing to deal with Lizzy.”
The texts were sent to an unknown number, the court was told.
However upon request by the defence that information from the unedited disc be presented, it was revealed that the unknown number was that of Campbell’s girlfriend and the texts were regarding their daughter Lizzy’s school supplies.
