Major Investigation Taskforce (MIT) investigators this evening charged Vybz Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, with murder, illegal possession of firearm and conspiracy to murder.

The charges against Palmer were made following the conduct of an interview this afternoon by detectives from the MIT in the presence of his attorneys.

The allegation is that on Monday, July 11, 2011, Palmer along with other men conspired to murder Barrington ‘Bossie’ Burton , a 27-year-old businessman and promoter of a Gregory Park address in St. Catherine.

Burton was murdered while he was standing with friends along Walkers Avenue in Gregory Park.

The preliminary hearing will take place tomorrow at the Half Way Tree Resident Magistrate’s Court.
