KINGSTON, Jamaica:

Dancehall entertainer Adidja 'Vybz' Kartel Palmer, has told the Home Circuit Court that he is innocent of the August 2011 murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams.




Kartel was giving his testimony after Justice Lennox Campbell dismissed a no-case submission made by the defence.



In throwing out the submission, the judge said Kartel and his co-accused had a case to answer.



The Crown is alleging that Kartel, entertainer Shawn Campbell, popularly known as Shawn Storm; André St John; Shane Williams; and Kahira Jones, murdered Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams on August 16, 2011.



It is alleged that Williams was killed at Kartel’s Havendale, St Andrew house over two missing guns.



Justice Campbell has assured the 11-member jury that by next week, he will hand over the case to them for their deliberation.
