KINGSTON, Jamaica CMC – Popular Dancehall Artiste, Vybz Kartel, and his three co-accused, have been sentenced to life in prison for the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
Kartel, whose real name is Adjidja Palmer, along with Shawn Campbell, Kahira Jones and Andre St. John, were found guilty on March 13 in relation to the death of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams. However, sentencing was postponed by the Judge who needed more information from the defense team.
Justice Lennox Campbell handed down the sentences on Thursday.
Kartel is to serve 35 years in jail before he becomes eligible for parole, while Campbell and Jones will serve 25 years, and St. John, 30.
Police say Williams was killed over the disappearance of two missing firearms. His body has not been found.
Kartel is also due to stand trial in August, for attempting to pervert the course of justice.
He is charged jointly with entertainers Vanessa ‘Gaza Slim’ Saddler and Andre ‘Pim Pim’ Henry.
The three were charged in 2012 following an investigation into an alleged scheme to deceive the police in their investigations into Williams’ murder.
