The appeal trial for Dancehall star Vybz Kartel is to commence on Monday, July 9 in the  Court of Appeal in Kingston.

The date for the appeal trial was initially set for February 19 but was rescheduled after his legal team requested more time to prepare for the case.

Four years have already elapsed since the entertainer began his wait to present his case in front of the appeal court judges.

In 2014, Kartel was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of his associate Clive “Lizard” Williams.

Reports indicate that all is in order ahead of the big day, as the legal groundwork has been finalised and positioning on the matter between the prosecution and the defence has been established.

Three other men were convicted for Williams’ murder in March 2014, and were each given life sentences, with the recommended time-frames before eligibility for parole running up to 35 years in the case of Kartel.
