It seems like when a dancehall artiste is not being arrested, awaiting trial or serving time for murder then it is a relative of a dancehall artiste who is being arrested or awaiting trial for murder. With Vybz Kartel already serving a life sentence for murder, the son of his nemesis Mavado, has been committed to stand trial for murder.
Mavado’s son along with another were charged with murder of Lorenzo Thomas in June of 2018. They were also charged with conspiracy to murder, arson, shooting with intent and illegal possession of firearm and ammunition.
It is alleged that Mavado’s son also gave the order for his co-defendant to behead Thomas.
“Memba di boss want him head,” the juvenile allegedly said to his co-defendant.
It is not clear who the “boss” that Mavado’s son was allegedly referring to.
Mavado’s son has denied all the allegations brought against him and he is being held in jail after multiple bail requests were denied.
“The problem with getting bail for him was that he came before the court with murder and three other charges,” his attorney Bert Samuels explained.
It is alleged that Thomas was killed after an earlier altercation where someone shot at Mavado.
