Vbbz Kartel was back in the Jamaican High court on Wednesday to continue his high profile murder trial.
Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, is on trial for the alleged murder of Clive "Lizard" Williams. He is jointly charged with Shawn "Storm" Campbell, Kahira Jones, Andre St John, and Shane Williams.
Yesterday the prosecution's main witness, Lamar Chow, continued his damning testimony, giving details on what happened after he and the victim were attacked at a house in Havendale on August 16, 2011.
Vybz Kartel's attorney grilled Chow on the witness stand telling him that he didn't enter the house and that the dog attacked him outside before Kartel tried to rescue him and was then bitten by the dog. Tavares-Finson then said that was the reason why Chow accompanied Vybz Kartel to the hospital. But the witness stood firm to his story.
During his testimony on Wednesday, Chow told the court that on August 17, 2011, a day after the alleged attack took place, Shawn Storm called him and invited him to go to Guyana because he did not want him to talk to anybody about what took place. The star witness said when he arrived at the airport he was greeted by Vybz Kartel, Moonie, and Sheba. He then told the court that they never got to go on the flight because it had already departed.
Chow said he was told to go home and return the Thursday morning but when he went back to Waterford, Portmore the Wednesday night he called his family to come take him out the community.
He said he never returned to the aiport the Thursday morning, and when contacted by Shawn Storm he told him that he was not going to Guyana with them.
Chow will be taking the witness stand again today where the defense attorneys will continue their cross-examination.If convicted, the accused men could face up to 25 years in prison.
