The messages were put into evidence by Taylor during cross-examination of police Detective Corporal Shawn Brown of the Organised Crime Investigation Division.
Taylor in his re-examination had asked Corporal Brown to look at the call schedule in relation to text messages which were attributed to accused Shawn Campbell and the mother of his child between August 16 and 18, 2011.
In one text message sent on August 16, 2011 the woman reportedly told Campbell not to put himself in any trouble.
In another message she also urged Campbell not to get involved in anything and that he should not trust the persons he was around.
The defence objected to the messages being put into evidence but the lead prosecutor said the door was open to allow them to be submitted.
Taylor said that it was during cross examination by the defence that it was borne out that the number was that of the mother of Campbell’s child.
The court was told that on four occasions on August 18, 2011, Campbell sent text messages to the woman telling her to delete the text messages he sent to her and the ones she sent to him.
And the court was shown a text message from a number attributed to Campbell which was reportedly sent to another number said to be attributed to Kartel saying “Lamar Noel Chow”.
Chow is the prosecution’s star witness.
He has testified that he and Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams were taken to Kartel’s house in Havendale, St Andrew by Campbell where they were attacked.
Detective corporal Shawn Brown from the Communication, Forensic and Cybercrimes Unit at the Organised Crime Investigation Division said under the Interception of Communication Act, he was empowered not to answer certain questions.
Detective corporal Shawn Brown claimed privilege when questioned by attorney Michael Lorne whether he saw when a previous witness and Digicel executive, Joseph Simmonds, signed is statement.
Lorne, who represents accused Shawn Campbell alias ‘Shaw Storm’ also wanted to find out who gave the order to write to Digicel requesting call data and text message records.
The lawyer pressed for answers but the presiding judge Justice Lennox Campbell intervened saying, under the law, the cop could refuse to answer.
Meanwhile, text message and call data records presented by the detective corporal dominated proceedings at the Home Circuit Court trial last week.
The 12-member jury was shown text messages and phone records allegedly between Kartel, his co-accused Shawn Storm, the deceased – Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams, and an unknown person.
Some of the text messages were allegedly sent by Williams to his girlfriend detailing that he was being taken to Kartel’s house to be killed.
Some of the messages were reportedly sent on August 16, 2011, the same day Williams was allegedly taken to the Havendale, St Andrew house.
The prosecution is alleging Williams was taken to the house, where he was beaten and killed because of two missing guns.
A body has not been found.
Kartel whose real name is Adidja Palmer is jointly charged with Shawn Storm, Kahira Jones, Shane Williams and Andre St John for the alleged August 16, 2011 murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
