Vybz Kartel has been denied bail after being accused in not one but two, murders in Jamaica.
Police in that case say he’s responsible for the shooting death of Barrington “Bossie” Burton, a 27 year old businessman/promoter from a St. Catherine address.
Just weeks after those accusations he was once again named in a case, this time by Detectives from a Criminal Investigation Branch in Constant Spring, St. Andrew.
Now according to The Associated Press, Resident Magistrate Opal Smith has refused Kartel’s bail.
He did not give a reason for his decision and Kartel’s defense team has yet to comment.
Vybz Kartel is currently in jail awaiting an October 26th hearing where he’s expected to answer charges of murder, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm in relation to the shooting death of Barrington “Bossie” Burton, a 27 year old businessman/promoter from a St. Catherine address.
Detectives from Criminal Investigation Branch in Constant Spring, St. Andrew issued another murder charge against Kartel and Kiro Jones aka “Ray Jones,” on Monday evening.
This is the second count of murder he has been charged with over the past three weeks.
It had been reported weeks earlier that a badly burnt body was found in a building believed to be owned by the self-proclaimed “World’ Boss.”
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.
