Dancehall reggae artist Vybz Kartel was sentenced today (Thursday) to life in prison for the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams, the Jamaica Gleanerreports.
After being found guilty of murdering Williams, Kartel, born Adidja Palmer, will have to serve at least 35 years before becoming eligible for parole. Three co-defendants also got life sentences.
Williams was killed in October 2011 and his body was never found. According toHipHopWired, Blackberry text messages describing the disposal of the body got Kartel and company convicted.
TeeRoy's 2 Cents:
-1.Reggae music will not be the same without Kartel.
--2.Kartel should have thought this one though. You can't be a dancehall superstar and be murdering folks, and not expect things to get hot.
---3.Do the crime -- be prepared to do the time
