The two men who were charged in relation to the killing of Clive “Lizard” Williams for which dancehall entertainer Vybz Kartel, is also charged were remanded in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court yesterday.

Andre St. John and Shane Williams are to return to court on January 7.

It is expected that at that time the crown will move to have their case transferred to the Home Circuit Court, where they will be charged jointly with Vybz Kartel and the three other accused.

Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, his stylist Calvin 'Moonie' Haye, deejay Shawn Storm, and Kiro Jones are facing the charge of murder.

Clive Williams was reportedly beaten and stabbed in Havendale, St Andrew, on August 16, but the police have not located his body.

Last month, the investigating officer in the case told the court that the police have video and audio recordings linking Vybz Kartel, and his co-accused to the killing.

The investigating officer said the police also have eye witness statements connecting the men to the murder.
