VYBZ KARTEL'S LAWYERS UNAWARE OF NEW MURDER PROBES
Lawyers representing Vybz Kartel are this afternoon saying they are unaware that the deejay is being implicated in 5 other murders currently being investigated by the police.
According to Christian Tavares-Finson, they are only aware of the two charges brought against him.
However, the Jamaica Gleaner is citing that the Head of the Criminal Investigation Branch, Assistant Commissioner Ealan Powell, said probes carried out by detectives have implicated Kartel in five additional murders and that detectives are also pursuing other members of the entertainment industry.
Numerous efforts by Music News to get a comment from ACP Powell proved futile.
Vybz Kartel who is currently facing two separate charges of murder has since been transferred to the Horizon Adult Remand Centre on Spanish Town Road. Vybz Kartel, his fashion designer Mooney and Gaza member Shawn Storm along with another man are charged with the August 16 murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams in Havendale, St Andrew.
Kartel has also been charged with the July murder of Barrington 'Bossie' Burton in Gregory Park, St Catherine. The deejay is also facing charges of ganja possession.
Vybz Kartel has been in police lockup since October 3.
