Investigators probing popular dancehall entertainer Vybz Kartel and members of his empire for a string of alleged murders say they have video evidence of the artiste and other men killing a man at a house in Havendale, St. Andrew.
The disclosure was made on Thursday morning when Vybz Kartel and three members of his empire network appeared before the Corporate Area Criminal Court.
The other accused are dancehall artiste Shawn Campbell otherwise called Shawn Storm; fashion designer Calvin Haye otherwise called Moonie and Kiera Jones.
The men are charged for the August 16 murder of Clive Williams otherwise called ‘Lizard’.
Government prosecutors reported that Mr. Williams was taken to a house in Havendale on August 16 where he was beaten and stabbed to death over a missing gun.
Mr. Haye’s attorney complained that he has not seen any statement linking his client to the case.
However, this was dismissed by the investigator who disclosed that they are putting together telephone evidence linking him to the crime.
In a surprise disclosure, the investigator told senior magistrate Judith Pusey that the police have video evidence and witness statements connecting the men to the murder.
It was alleged that the killing of the young man was captured on a phone which was later seized by the police.
Vybz Kartel and the other accused are to return to court on December 2 for a bail hearing.
