Vybz Kartel and three co-accused in the murder of an associate were today (March 15) granted leave to appeal their conviction and sentence.

As a result, Kartel whose birth name is Adidja Palmer; Shawn Campbell; Kahira Jones; and Andre St John are now free to be heard in the Court of Appeal in their bid to overturn their conviction and sentence.

The men were convicted in the Home Circuit Court, in March 2014, for murdering Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.

They were sentenced the following month to life imprisonment, with the possibility of parole after serving a period of 25 and 35 years behind bars.

The men are represented by Tom Tavares-Finson, QC, and Michael Lorne.
