The bail application began in chambers last week Friday and continued this Friday.
Attorney-at-law Valerie Neita Robertson who is representing Kartel in the murder case involving Clive 'Lizard' Williams made the application.
Kartel and his co-accused are to return to the Home Circuit Court on May 27 when it is expected that the trial will begin.
Prosecutor Joan Barnett had opposed the application on the basis that the prosecution has a strong case against him.
Kartel is charged jointly with Andre St John, Kahira Jones, Shane Williams and Calvin Haye and fellow entertainer Shawn Campbell, more popularly known as 'Shawn Storm'.
Kartel has been in custody since September 2011.
He has been granted bail in relation to the murder of Barrington 'Bossy' Burton in another case but cannot take up the offer because of the Williams matter.
It is alleged that Williams was killed at Kartelís home in Havendale, St Andrew, on August 16, 2011.
Williams and another man were reportedly taken to the entertainerís house to account for a lost firearm.
Williamsí body has not been found.
