THE second murder case against caged deejay Vybz Kartel, was stood down this morning in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court because a co-accused was not brought to court by the police.

Resident Magistrate Georgianna Fraser put off the matter until Calvin Haye, who is charged along with Kartel for the murder of Clive Williams also called 'Lizard', is taken to court by police.

Police reported that Williams was killed in Havendale, St Andrew on August 16 over an illegal firearm.

Dressed in white shirt, purple tie and black pants, Kartel was brought into court shackled to another inmate. He sat watching this morning's proceedings from inside a holding area and was seen conversing with other prisoners.

He is also charged with murder, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm in relation to the murder of Barrington 'Bossie' Bryan, who was shot dead at Gregory Park, St Catherine.
