[Sharingbuttons]The murder case involving Adijah ‘Vybz Kartel; Palmer, Shawn Campbell who is also known as Shawn Storm and  the two co-accused Andre St. John and Kahira Jones was held in the Court of Appeal today . The judge has granted leave for the introduction of new evidence to be introduced in the case which involves the entertainers. The judges only accepted two out of three issues that were presented to them.

The new evidence that was rejected was connected to fresh evidence regarding Kimberley Cranston’s statement and statements from jurors who were involved in juror Cain Livingston’s corruption trial. 
Kartel’s Lawyer Valrie Neita Robertson had stated that the jury was contaminated and the case was prejudiced by media coverage during the trial.


Vybz Kartel will not be eligible for parole until after 35 years, Andre St. John will be imprisoed for 30 years before he will be considered for parole and the other co-accused will be considered for parole after 25 years each. 

The convicted men had cited contaminated cell phone evidence and they claimed that Justice Lennox Campbell had erred in his judgement and they hadn’t received a fair trial. They were convicted after Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams was murdered.
