KINGSTON, Jamaica – Entertainer Vybz Kartel and his three co-convicts have filed appeals against their convictions and life sentences.

The appeals were filed in the Court of Appeal downtown, Kingston on April 15.

Kartel (real name Adidja Palmer), Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell, Kahria Jones and Andre St John were slapped with life sentences April 3, for the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams believed by the police to be over two missing guns.

Kartel is to serve 35 years in prison before he becomes eligible for parole. His co-accused, ‘Shawn Storm’ is to serve 25 years before he is eligible for parole, Kahira Jones- 25 years and Andre St John, 30 years.

A guilty verdict was returned for all four on March 13, ending 65 days of trial for the beating death of Williams, which police say occurred on August 16, 2011 at a house owned by Palmer in Havendale, St Andrew.

A fourth co-accused, Shane Williams, was found not guilty by the 11 member jury.

‘Lizard’ Williams’ body has not been found.

    No, You are supposed to start your appeal within 28 days of
    conviction. Time runs from the date of conviction, even if
    you were sentenced at a later hearing.
