Tuesday the deadline for Vybz Kartel to appeal murder conviction

0
Tuesday is the deadline set by the Appeal Court for attorneys representing imprisoned dancehall entertainer Vybz Kartel to file grounds of appeal.
The deadline was agreed during a case management hearing in November.
If the attorneys fail to meet the April 3 deadline, this could set back Kartel’s appeal hearing which is scheduled for July 9.
The matter will be heard over three weeks.
Vybz Kartel, whose real name is Adijah Palmer, was convicted along with Kahira Jones, Andre St. John, and entertainer Shawn Campbell in 2014 for the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams.
The four were given life sentences.
Kartel will be eligible for parole after 35 years.
