The case embattled dancehall entertainer Vybz Kartel in relation to the murder of St. Catherine businessman Barrington ‘Bossy’ Burton is expected to be mentioned in the Home Circuit Court today.

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 also facing the charges of conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm.

Kartel has been in custody since September last year.

The controversial artiste has been offered bail in the Burton murder case, but he has been unable to take it up because he has other cases pending in the courts for which he has been denied bail.
