Vybz Kartel (real name Adidja Palmer), Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell, Kahria Jones and Andre St John were slapped with life sentences April 3, for the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams believed by the police to be over two missing guns.
Kartel is to serve 35 years in prison before he becomes eligible for parole. His co-accused, ‘Shawn Storm’ is to serve 25 years before he is eligible for parole, Kahira Jones- 25 years and Andre St John, 30 years.

A fourth co-accused, Shane Williams, was found not guilty by the 11 member jury.
