Well this is scary!
The Jamaican dancehall star, Vybz Kartel, has been arrested and charged for the murder of Barrington Burton.
Kartel is formally charged with murder, conspiracy to murder, and illegal possession of a firearm.
The charges were made after a lengthy interrogation made by Jamaica’s Major Investigation Taskforce (MIT). Kartel’s attorneys were present.
According to police, Kartel is believed to have conspired with other men to murder Burton, a 27-year-old music promoter and businessman. Burton was murdered on July 11, 2011 while he was standing with friends along Walkers Avenue in Portmore.
Due to the charges, Kartel’s reality show, Teacha’s Pet (his very own Rock of Love) has been cancelled.
Kartel is also a businessman. He has his own line of rubbers — Daggering Condoms — as well as his own poison — Vybz Rum.
Being so popular in Jamaica, the recent chain of events has left most of the community in shock. Kartel is infamous for being a poor influence on minors, but the actual act of murder has shaken the core of his fan base.
