KINGSTON, Jamaica - Adidja ‘Vybz Kartel’ Palmer and his three co-accused were Thursday slapped with life sentences for the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
Kartel is to serve 35 years in prison before he becomes eligible for parole. His co-accused, Shawn 'Shawn Storm' Campbell is to serve 25 years before he is eligible for parole, Kahira Jones- 25 years and Andre St John, 30 years.
Justice Lennox Campbell handed down the sentences after listening to summations from each defence lawyer in the case.
A guilty verdict was returned for all four on March 13, ending 65 days of trial for the beating death of Williams, which police say occurred on August 16, 2011 at a house owned by Palmer in Havendale, St Andrew.
