Jury to be empanelled in Vybz Kartel's case

A jury is expected to be empanelled when the trial in which entertainer Vybz Kartel has been accused of killing a St Catherine businessman gets underway this afternoon.

The matter is set to come before the Home Circuit Court at 2 p.m. following several delays.

Lenburgh McDonald and Nigel Thompson are also charged in relation to the killing of 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, whose given name is Adijah Palmer, McDonald and Thompson have been in custody since they were charged in October 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.
