INVESTIGATORS from the Major Investigation Taskforce (MIT)  yesterday evening charged dancehall deejay Vybz Kartel with murder, conspiracy  to murder and illegal possession of firearm.

A news release from the police said that the charges against the  deejay, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, were made following the conduct of an  interview yesterday afternoon by detectives from the MIT in the presence of his  attorneys.

“The allegation is that on Monday, July 11, 2011, Palmer, along  with other men, conspired to murder Barrington Burton o/c ‘Bossie’, a  27-year-old businessman/promoter of a Gregory Park address in St Catherine.  Burton was murdered while he was standing with friends along Walkers Avenue in  Gregory Park,” the police release said.

A preliminary hearing will take place today at the Half-Way-Tree  Resident Magistrate’s Court, the police said.
