The matter was called up in the Home Circuit Court this morning where both the defence and the prosecution agreed to the December date on the grounds that the court is now occupied and so the case cannot proceed just yet.
Burton was killed in July last year while he was standing with friends along Walker’s Avenue in Gregory Park, St. Catherine.
Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, is charged with conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm.
The entertainer has been in custody since September last year.
This morning Kartel’s bail was extended but he cannot take up the bond since he has been remanded in connection with the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
Kartel is before the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court on a charge of conspiracy in relation to Williams’ murder.
The police say the controversial entertainer was a part of a plot to kill Williams.
