Will newly introduced audio evidence make conviction more likely in Vybz Kartel Trial?

The highly publicized Vybz Kartel murder trial took another drastic turn in the Home Court on Friday (Jan 24) after the prosecution played damning audio that could implicate Vybz Kartel.

The presiding judge admitted two compact discs into evidence containing audio, video, and photo evidence.

Former head of the Cybercrime Unit, Detective Sergeant Patrick Linton, was allowed to play 9 of 40 audio recordings.

The expletives laced audio files are of a male with a voice resembling that of Vybz Kartel.
