Stephanie Breckenridge, the sister of Clive 'Lizard' Williams, is in protective custody today as concerns mount about the increasing threat level against her family.

Entertainer Adidja 'Vybz Kartel' Palmer and three other accused were on Thursday convicted of the murder of Williams.

Speaking yesterday from an undisclosed location, Breckenridge said she was unable to elaborate on her feeling towards the guilty verdict because of advice from the police.

She claimed that the threat level against her family is now high and her team has taken the decision for her to limit interviews.

"We've been in protective custody and they are aware of an increased threat level. They were saying not right now. We have a meeting later today (yesterday) so I will ask them. I don't see anything that will increase my threat level but apparently people have been upset that I've been talking period, so that's where the problem lies," she said.

Entertainers Adidja 'Vybz Kartel' Palmer, Shawn 'Shawn Storm' Campbell, Kahira Jones and André St John were all found guilty of the August 2011 murder of Williams.

The other defendant, Shane Williams, who was represented by Everton Dewar, was freed.
