Kartel 'rogue' juror to stand trial today

The alleged rogue juror in the Vybz Kartel murder trial is expected to stand trial for corruption this morning.

Livingston Cain is accused of attempting to and conspiring to pervert the course of justice by trying to bribe another juror to return a not guilty verdict in the entertainer's murder trial.

This will be the second attempt to started Cain's trial.

The matter was to start in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court last October but had to be put off because some persons involved in the case were suffering from the Chikungunya virus.

At the time, the Crown had indicated it was ready and had 29 witnesses to call.

Prosecutors claim that Cain offered other jurors half a million dollars to return a not guilty verdict in Kartel's murder trial.

Last March, Kartel and three others were convicted and later sentenced to life in prison for the 2011 murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams.
