KINGSTON, Jamaica:
Justice Lennox Campbell has ruled that video and other evidence may be admitted as evidence in the Vybz Kartel murder trial.


Lawyers this afternoon completed their submissions in relation to the hearing and Justice Campbell then made the ruling.

It is understood that this will entail all the material which the prosecution had sought to have tendered into evidence.

For several weeks the court had been hearing evidence from witnesses including cyber crimes expert Detective Sergeant Patrick Linton.

Detective Sergeant Linton was the head of the Police Forensic and Cybercrimes Unit at the Organised Crime Investigation Division when the police carried out its investigation into the murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams.

The police had reported that they have video and audio recordings linking Vybz Kartel and his co-defendants to the killing.

Kartel is jointly charged with fellow entertainer Shawn Campbell also known as Shawn Storm, Kahira Jones, Shane Williams and Andre St John for the August 16, 2011 murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams.

Williams was allegedly killed in relation to two missing guns.
