Vybz Kartel's 'Bossy' trial pushed back

The trial in which entertainer Vybz Kartel has been accused of killing a St Catherine businessman has again been pushed back.

The trial could not go ahead in the Home Circuit Court this morning because there were other cases before it.

The matter was then rescheduled to tomorrow.

Yesterday, the case was put off to today because of a missing case file.

This morning prosecutors informed the court that the case file has been located, stressing that it had simply been misplaced.

The attorneys for Kartel’s co-accused Lenburgh McDonald and Nigel Thompson have put off their application for bail.

The men have been in custody since they were charged in October 2011.

Kartel, whose given name is Adijah Palmer, McDonald and Thompson are on trial in relation to the killing of St Catherine businessman Barrington ‘Bossy’ Burton.

The police say Burton was murdered while he was standing with friends along Walker's Avenue in Gregory Park, St Catherine in July 2011.

Kartel was granted bail on that charge but cannot take up the offer because he has another murder case pending in the Home Circuit Court.
