JAILED Deejay Adijah 'Vybz Kartel' Palmer is expected to appear in the Gun Court section of the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court today to answer to murder and gun related charges.

Palmer along with Nigel Thomas and Lainberg McDonald are jointly charged with the murder of 27-year-old Barrington 'Bossie' Burton. Police said on July 12 Burton was slain as he stood among a group of friends at Walkers Avenue in Gregory Park, St Catherine.

All three were remanded in custody when they last appeared in court on October 14.

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

The Deejay's legal woes were further compounded when news broke late Monday evening that he was slapped with a second murder charge by cops from Constant Spring Criminal Investigation Branch.

Kartel and Kiro Jones, also called 'Ray Jones', are charged for the murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams. The police say Williams was murdered on August 16th in Havendale, St Andrew.
