Vybz Kartel has been charged with murder.
Kartel is accused of killing a 27-year-old promoter Barrington “Bossie” Burton in Jamaica on July 11th, 2011.
Vybz was arrested yesterday and charged by the Major Investigation Task force, after being arrested in Kingston last week for marijuana possession.
Reports state that the initial arrest occurred, so police could hold Vybz until he was officially charged in the murder of Burton.
Vybz was charged with illegal possession of a firearm, murder and conspiracy to murder.
