KINGSTON, Jamaica -- The juror who allegedly attempted to bribe his colleague jurors to return a not guilty verdict in the Vybz Kartel murder case is scheduled to return to court today (Friday, March 28).

Livingston Cain was offered $750,000 bail when he appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court last week.

The court was told then that the case file was not yet complete.

Cain is said to have offered the jury foreman $500,000 for a not-guilty verdict. And is alleged to have told another juror that he will "take care of him" if he returned a not-guilty verdict as well.

Cain was the only one to vote not guilty in the conviction of Vybz Kartel, Shaw 'Shawn Storm' Campbell, Andre St John and Kahira Jones. A fifth man Shane Williams was acquitted.

The men were convicted of the August 16, 2011 murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams over the disappearance of two illegal guns.
