THE murder and gun possession preliminary hearing for dancehall deejay Vybz Kartel, failed to come before a magistrate for the second successive day as the case file is still incomplete.
The artiste was arrested last Friday at a hotel in New Kingston when cops from the Flying Squad swooped down on a room occupied by the deejay and three other persons. A small quantity of ganja was found and all four were arrested and charged for ganja possession.
Police later charged Vybz Kartel for murder, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm in relation to the July murder of Barrington Burton o/c ‘Bossie’, a 27-year-old businessman/promoter of a Gregory Park address in St Catherine. Burton was murdered while he was standing with friends along Walkers Avenue in Gregory Park.
