KINGSTON, Jamaica:

The presiding judge at the Vybz Kartel murder trial has just informed the court that all the jurors are available and proceedings will start at 1 o’clock this afternoon.

The unavailability of one juror resulted in the cancellation of the morning session.

It is not clear why the juror from the 11-member panel was unavailable.

Justice Lennox Campbell is on his fifth day of summing up evidence in the case.

He is expected to complete the review of evidence from Detective Sergeant Patrick Linton, a former head of the Police Cybercrimes Unit.

The policeman had introduced call records, text messages and voice notes in the trial.

The judge has reviewed the evidence of 13 of 24 witnesses called in the case.

Kartel and Kahira Jones, Shane Williams, André St John, and entertainer Shawn Campbell, also called Shawn Storm are on trial for the August 2011 murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.

He was allegedly killed over two missing guns.
