Vybz Kartel’s appeal date has been set for next year.
The incarcerated Dancehall superstar and his three co-accused in the 2011 murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams will be heard in the Court of Appeal on February 19, 2018.
The three week trial was set on Tuesday, May 9 for the self-proclaimed ‘Worl Boss,’ real name Adidja Palmer, Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell, Kahira Jones and Andre St John in the Appeals Court at a case management hearing.
The defence attorneys were ordered to file their grounds of appeal by the end of October while the prosecution must file its case by November.
Kartel is currently serving life and won’t be eligible for parole after 35 years. The sentencing of the ‘Fever’ hit marker came after a 65-day trial, the longest in Jamaica’s history.
