Popular dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel has lost his appeal against his murder conviction. After a near two-year wait, the Court of Appeal this morning handed down a judgment affirming the murder conviction of the popular entertainer and his co-accused.
The appeal court, however, said that they will be looking into whether or not the punishment for the crime was too harsh pending additional arguments from Vybz Kartel’s attorneys.
Vybz Kartel is serving a life sentence for the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams.
