INVESTIGATORS from the Major Investigation Taskforce (MIT) yesterday evening charged dancehall deejay Vybz Kartel with murder, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of firearm.
A news release from the police said that the charges against the deejay, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, were made following the conduct of an interview yesterday afternoon by detectives from the MIT in the presence of his attorneys.

Burton was murdered while he was standing with friends along Walkers Avenue in Gregory Park," the police release said.
A preliminary hearing will take place today at the Half-Way-Tree Resident Magistrate's Court, the police said.
