KINGSTON, Jamaica – Entertainer Adidja ‘Vybz Kartel’ Palmer, found guilty of murder, arrived at the Supreme Court downtown Kingston a short while ago dressed in a black T-shirt, dark-blue jeans and sunshades to face his future.

Meanwhile, Police are on high alert in sections of the downtown commercial district as the clock ticks closer to the sentencing of the popular entertainer and his three co accused.

Kartel, fellow entertainer Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell; Kahira Jones and André St John are to hear the verdict today after being found guilty two Thursdays ago for the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams, believed committed on August 16, 2011.

A fourth co-accused, Shane Williams, was found not guilty after 65 days of trial in the Home Circuit court downtown Kingston.

‘Lizard’ Williams was allegedly beaten to death at Kartel's Havendale house over two missing guns.
