The Crown argued during Friday’s hearing that they possess more incriminating evidence against Vybz Kartel and the co-accused in the Williams murder case. According to the prosecution, police carried out a raid at Altamont Court last year, where they discovered a mobile phone that contained a voice message of Haye planning the murder.

However, prosecutors argued that they need professional voice analysis paraphernalia from overseas in order to identify whether the voice was indeed Haye’s. Given that they are waiting for clarification and that no independent evidence supported their claim, the presiding judge, Justice Courtney Daye granted the young designer bail.

Meanwhile, prosecutors also revealed that Williams was beaten by the accused with blocks and pick axes while at a house in Havendale, St. Andrew on August 16. A man was reportedly transported to the house and witnessed the beating as it took place at the residence. The witness ran away from the house before Vybz Kartel shouted out to him; claiming that he only sought after Williams and not him.

Furthermore, the prosecution outlined that the self-proclaimed “Worl Boss” led a notorious gang in Waterford, St. Catherine. Allegedly, Williams was a gun locker in the gang. When some guns went missing in August of last year, the dancer by profession feared for his life; needing money to pay for the guns that he was responsible for accounting for.

Kartel faces two murder-related charges and a gun charge in relation to the shooting death of Barrington “Bossie” Burton in Gregory Park, St. Catherine. The deejay was awarded bail worth JA$3 million in that matter but cannot post said bail given he’s been remanded in the Williams matter.

Kartel and the other co-accused in the Williams case are scheduled for a February 17 court appearance.
