Voice notes were played this afternoon during the high profile murder trial involving dancehall deejay Vybz Kartel.

9 of the 24 voice notes that were entered into evidence were played for the court to review. The voice of a man who was not identified could be heard on majority of the audio stating that he was going to kill someone if his missing shoes were not returned.

IRIE FM’S Jilleen Pearson attended court and filed this report.

At yesterday’s hearing, before the video evidence could be shown, a juror had to be rushed to the University hospital and the trial adjourned.

That juror was visibly absent from today’s proceedings. The juror’s condition is not yet known.

Vybz Kartel and Shawn Storm along with three others are on trial for the alleged 2011 murder of Clive Lizard Williams.

Critics said it was impossible to sustain a 24-hour Reggae music station. In fact, so strong was the impact, it proved that this format was something the Jamaican public yearned for. The 'little station that could' got all media houses in Jamaica to stand up and take note.
