However, fans are keeping their fingers cross given the numerous delays in the trial over the last year.
Kartel was arrested in September 2011 in Kingston and slapped with two murder charges related to the death of Clive “Lizard” Williams and Barrington “Bossie” Burton.
Detectives say they are in possession of video evidence linking Vybz Kartel and his co-accused to Williams’ murder.
Clive Williams, who detectives say was beaten to death at a home in Havendale by Vybz Kartel and his cronies, body was not found.
Vybz Kartel’s protege Shawn Storm and four other men are also charged with same murder.
