Vybz Kartel murder trial in the Home Circuit court on Monday saw some major development as the prosecution revealed text messages from Clive “Lizard” Williams cellphone.
The damning text messages implicate Vybz Kartel and Shawn Storm in the alleged August 16, 2011 murder of Clive Williams.
Detective Corporal Sean Brown, from the Organized Crime Investigation Division (OCID), made a PowerPoint presentation of some text messages alleged sent between Vybz Karteland Shawn Storm and Clive Williams and his girlfriend.
A terrified Clive Williams sent several text messages to his girlfriend on August 16, 2011 begging her to help him while he was en route to the house in Havendale.
Police officers say Kartel, born Adidja Palmer, along with Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Kahira Jones, André St John, and Shane Williams allegedly beat Clive “Lizard” Williams to death over two missing firearms belonging to the dancehall star.

Last week Joseph Simmonds, who is Digicel’s Group Business Risk Director, took the witness stand and told the court that none of the 40 cellphones were registered to Vybz Kartel and his co-accused Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Kahira Jones, André St John, and Shane Williams.
Simmonds also told the court that it is possible to clone a Digicel sim card.
The jury now have the daunting task of determining whether or not these are legitimate text messages sent between the parties involved.
