Popular dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel has been charged with murder by investigators from the Major Investigation Taskforce (MIT).
The entertainer, whose given name is Adidjah Palmer, has been charged with murder, illegal possession of a firearm and conspiracy to murder.
Kartel was charged Monday evening after detectives from the MIT questioned the artiste in the presence of his attorneys Monday afternoon.
The allegation is that on Monday, July 11, Kartel along with other men conspired to murder Barrington Burton, who is otherwise called 'Bossie', a 27 year- old businessman/promoter of a Gregory Park address in St. Catherine.
Mr. Burton was murdered while he was standing with friends along Walkers Avenue in Gregory Park.
