Kartel Trial Real Time Update (DAY 7)

Forensic fire expert, Nicola Brown Baxter, also took the witness stand and told the court that she visited the burnt down home in Havendale five days after the alleged murder took place. She said she observed equipments on the property that she believed was used to start the fire.

Prosecutors theorized that Vybz Kartel and his co-accused beat Clive Williams to death at the home at 7 Swallowfield Avenue, Havendale, in St. Andrew on August 16, 2011. The crown says the home was set on fire to destroy evidence of the murder.

Vybz Kartek attorneys cross examined fire expert Nicola Brown Baxter,
who told the court that the burnt down home could have been under the
control of police officers since it is termed a crime scene.

Brown Baxter later said when she went to the home it was unsecured
which didn’t strike her as unusual. She added that fire crime scenes are
usually kept secure to avoid contamination.

Update:
The prosecution star witness, Lamar Chow alias WII, took the stand moments ago and appeared to be very nervous.

Chow positively identified Vybz Kartel and his co-accused Shawn
“Storm” Campbell, Kahira Jones, André St John, and Shane Williams. He
also told the court that he knew Clive “Lizard” Williams for six years
from the Waterford community in Portmore, St. Catherine.
