A judge in Kingston, Jamaica, has refused bail for Jamaican rapper/dancehall artist Vybz Kartel, who is facing two murder charges.

The ruling Wednesday (November 2) rejected a bail application by the 35-year-old Kartel, who is accused of gunning down a 27-year-old music promoter killed back in July. A reason for the refusal is unknown as of press time.

Kartel is also being charged for a separate slaying in August and is being investigated in connection with "a number of murders, shootings and gunrunning," according to the Washington Post.—Gina Montana
