The appeal hearing for dancehall sensation, Vybz Kartel, who was convicted of murder along with three of his associates in 2014, has been rescheduled from February next year.

The hearing was on Monday scheduled for July 9 next year, back from the original February 19 date, at a case management hearing.

Indications were that the defence sought more time to complete its preparation for the appeal.

Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, along with the other men, were convicted of the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.

They are all now serving life sentences as a result of the conviction.
