It is expected that the Home Circuit Court will commence trial on May 27th 2013, when Kartel and the rest of the co-accused are to return to the court.
Joan Barnett the prosecutor had given opposition to the application on the grounds that the prosecution have a strong case against him.
Kartel is charged jointly with Shawn Campbell a fellow entertainer , aka ‘Shawn Storm’ as-well as Andre St John, Kahira Jones, Shane Williams and Calvin Haye.
Although Kartel was granted bail in the Barrington ‘Bossy’ Burton case, he cannot take up the offer as a result of the Williams trial.

Williams and another man were reportedly taken to the entertainer’s house to account for a lost firearm.
Williams’ body has not been found.
