The legal woes and alleged body count is mounting for reggae superstar Vybz Kartel. Jamaican police have charged the dancehall king with the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams, which is now the second murder charge Kartel is facing this month.

 

According to go-jamaica.com, Constant Spring Criminal Investigation Branch detectives allege that Kartel (born Adidjah Palmer) and Kiro Jones murdered Williams on August 16, 2011 in St Andrew, Jamaica.

 

Earlier this month the “Rampin Shop” deejay was charged with murder, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm. Detectives said Kartel and several other men conspired to murder rival promoter Barrington “Bossie” Burton, who was shot and killed on July 11, 2011.

 

Kartel is expected in court for a hearing on the Boosie murder later this week, prosecutors will then look to hold a preliminary hearing on the Williams case immediately after.
