KINGSTON, Jamaica:

Entertainer Vybz Kartel and his four co-accused will know their fate next week.

Justice Lennox Campbell had estimated that the case would end this week but today some of the jurors said they will only be available in the afternoon tomorrow and Thursday.

When the trial resumes tomorrow afternoon defense lawyer Tamika Harris will begin to address the jury and after that the judge will begin his summation to the jury.

Kartel is on trial along with entertainer Shawn Campbell also called 'Shawn Storm', Kahiro Jones, Shane Williams and Andre St John.

They are charged with the murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams, of Waterford, St Catherine.

The Crown is alleging that Williams was beaten to death at Kartel's house in Havendale on August 26, 2011 over two missing guns.

Today attorney-at-law Pierre Rogers who is representing Jones asked the jury to acquit the men because there were too many contradictions in the Crown's case.
