Embattled dancehall entertainer, Vybz Kartel, has been remanded until November 3.
Kartel, whose real name is Adidjah Palmer appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court this morning to answer to the murder of a man in Havendale, St. Andrew.
The DJ is charged jointly with Kiro Jones, alias ‘Ray Jones’, and Calvin Haye with the August 16 murder of Clive Williams.
Haye was also remanded and has been ordered to give his fingerprints to the police.
It is alleged that on that on August 16, Williams was led to a house where he was beaten and stabbed to death.
Investigators are yet to find his body.
The attack reportedly stemmed from the loss of an illegal gun.
Meanwhile, the drug case against Kartel is also set to be called up in court today.
Kartel is charged with illegal possession of ganja.
A magistrate is to rule Wednesday on a bail application made by Kartel’s lawyers in relation to another murder case against the controversial DJ.
Kartel is accused of the shooting death of St. Catherine businessman and promoter, Barrington Burton.
Burton was murdered while standing with friends in Gregory Park, St. Catherine, in July.
Two other men are also charged with the murder of the businessman.
