Dancehall entertainer Vybz Kartel and his accomplices are to return to the Home Circuit Court on June 8 on two separate murder charges.
In the Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams murder case, Kartel and four of the five other accused were this afternoon remanded when they appeared in court.
The fifth man, Calvin Haye, has been on bail for sometime time now.
Those who have been remanded are Sean Campbell, Kahira Jones, Shane Williams, and Andre St John.
In court this afternoon, the judge told Williams and St John that if their legal representation is not settled by the next hearing, a legal aid lawyer will be assigned.
The second case relates to the murder of Barrington ‘Bossy’ Burton.
Palmer is on bail in that matter but cannot take up the bond, since he has been remanded in connection with the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
However, his co-accused Lenburgh McDonald and Nigel Thompson are yet to be granted bail.
Their lawyers are to make a bail application in relation to that case on June 8, when they return to court.
Kartel has been in custody since September last year.
