CAGED Deejay Adidjah 'Vybz Kartel' Palmer arrived at the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court this morning where his legal team will make a bail application on his behalf.

The arrival of the entertainer, who has been in police custody for two weeks, was met with cheers from a handful of supporters gathered outside the court.

The celebration was however short-lived as the artiste, who was dressed in purple, was quickly escorted to a holding area inside the court building.

The supporters continue to wait to her the outcome of the application.

He is charged with murder, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm.

Kartel was charged on October 3 following investigations into the July shooting death of 27-year-old Barrington Burton in Gregory Park, St Catherine.

Two other suspects in the case were charged earlier this week.
