Dancehall entertainer, Vybz Kartel and three of his five co-accused in the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams were today remanded when they appeared in the Home Circuit Court.


The five co-accused are Shawn Campbell, popularly known as Shawn Storm, fashion designer Calvin Haye, Andre St John, and Kahira Jones and Shane Williams.

Haye's bail was extended while Williams was offered bail in the sum of $500,000 with sureties.

The accused have been ordered to return to the Home Circuit Court on November 18 when their trial will begin.

Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer and the five other men are accused of murdering Williams at Kartel’s home in Havendale, St Andrew on August 16, 2011.

Williams was allegedly beaten to death in August 2011 over the disappearance of an illegal gun.

Today attorney-at-law Michael Lorne who is representing Campbell made another bail application for him.

But Justice Sarah Thompson James said she saw no change of the circumstances to warrant granting bail.

Attorney-at-law Tom Tavares Finson who is representing Kartel in commenting on the long delay in having a trial said the prosecution to do the right thing and ask the judge to grant Kartel bail.

But Senior deputy director of public prosecutions Jeremy Taylor in opposing bail referred to the seriousness of the offence in respect to both Kartel and Campbell.
