Telephone records in the Vybz Kartel murder trial today suggested that the entertainer made several phone calls to Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams the day before he went missing.

The Crown is alleging that on August 16, 2011 Kartel and his four co-accused beat Williams to death at the artiste’s house in Havendale, St Andrew because of two missing guns.

Williams’ body was never found.

Today, Detective Corporal Shawn Brown presented cell site evidence in court which showed several calls made on August 14 and 15, 2011 between accused Kartel, Shawn ‘Shawn Storm' Campbell, Williams and the main witness in the case.

The analysis also indicated the general area where some of the calls were initiated and received.

The Detective Corporal’s PowerPoint presentation attributed phone numbers to Kartel as making and receiving calls from the ‘Lizard’ Williams.

One of Kartel’s alleged calls to ‘Lizard’ Williams the day before he went missing lasted for four minutes and 29 seconds.

Earlier today, more text message revelations pointed to Campbell, allegedly suggesting that Williams ran away.

Jurors have also heard text message evidence suggesting that Williams feared for his life after being summoned to visit Vybz Kartel on August 16, 2011.

The court has also heard evidence of Williams informing his girlfriend that he was being transported to a Havendale house and he feared that he was going to be killed.

The trial continues in the Home Circuit Court Thursday.

It will not sit on Wednesday because two jurors have appointments to which they must attend.

Kartel is jointly charged Campbell – a fellow entertainer, Kahira Jones, Shane Williams and Andre St John for the August 16, 2011 murder of Williams.
