Vybz Kartel has been found not guilty in the murder of St. Catherine businessman Barrington ‘Bossy’ Burton. He was charged with conspiracy to murder, possession of a firearm, and murder in October 2011 after a burned body was found in a residence that he was known to visit or own.
The jury also found Kartel's two co-accused, Lenburgh McDonald and Nigel Thompson, not guilty as well. The three accused were all freed after the prosecution informed the court that it had no further evidence against them.
However, Kartel's troubles aren't over just yet. He's still being held in custody for another murder case pending against him. He's expected to return to the Home Circuit Court in November for the Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams murder case trial.
