Dancehall artiste Ninja Man back behind bars
Popular entertainer Ninja Man is back in custody. Ninja Man, whose real name is Desmond Ballentine, had his bail revoked by Justice Martin Gayle yesterday at the end of day one of his long-delayed murder trial in the Home Circuit Court in downtown Kingston.
Ballentine was arrested and charged in 2009 along with his son, Janeil, and another man, Dennis Clayton, for the fatal shooting of Ricardo Johnson that same year.
They are also charged with shooting with intent.
The case was first before the court in 2009 and has 17 missed trial dates and 23 mention dates in the eight years.
Before the trial commenced, attorneys for the three men made an application for a stay of proceedings for abuse of process.
The application was, however, refused and Gayle ordered that the trial commenced immediately.
A seven-member jury has been selected and prosecutors have already outlined the allegations against the entertainer and his co-accused.
