Justice Lennox Campbell Tuesday (Feb. 11) afternoon indicated to the 11-member jury panel in the Vybz Kartel murder trial that the case will be handed over for their verdict next week.
“We are close to the end, perhaps it’s safe to say that we are at the beginning of the end,” Campbell told the jurors before dismissing them for the afternoon.
Tuesday morning by attorneys Tamika Harris and Everton Dewar filed no case submissions before the court for Andre ‘Mad Puss’ St John and Shane Williams respectively.
Defense lawyers in the Vybz Kartel case have completed their no-case submissions to a Home Circuit Court judge.
If accepted, it could result in the State’s murder case against Vybz Kartel and his four co-accused being thrown out.
Lead prosecutor Jeremy Taylor is to respond to the submissions on behalf of the Crown.
The Crown is alleging that Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer; entertainer Shawn Campbell, popularly known as Shawn Storm; André St John; Shane Williams; and Kahira Jones, murdered Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams on August 16, 2011.
It is alleged that Williams was killed at Kartel’s Havendale, St Andrew house over two missing guns.
The prosecution closed its case yesterday, paving the way for the defense lawyers to make their no-case submissions in the absence of the jury.
Tamika Harris who represents St John and Everton Dewar, Shane Williams’ attorney completed submissions before presiding judge, Justice Lennox Campbell this morning.
Yesterday submissions were completed by Kartel’s lawyers Christian and Tom Tavares-Finson, Pierre Rogers who represents Kahira Jones and Shawn Storm’s lawyer, Michael Lorne.
