KINGSTON, Jamaica -- The murder trial of Dancehall entertainer Vybz Kartel continues this morning in the Home Circuit court.

Yesterday lawyers suggested that key prosecution witness made up the murder story because he was never inside the Havendale house where the alleged victim Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams is believed to have been killed.

You were outside taking Kartel to the hospital for a dog bite... you never went inside the house, defence lawyer Tamika Harris argued.

Kartel and four co-accused – entertainer Shawn Campbell, popularly known as Shawn Storm, André St John, Shane Williams and Kahira Jones -- are on trial for the 2011 murder of Williams.

Harris is representing St John.
