Ninjaman was found guilty of murder in the Home Circuit Court on Monday in downtown Kingston.
The veteran Dancehall artist, real Desmond Ballentine, was charged along with his son Jahneil and another man, Dennis Clayton, for the murder of Ricardo Johnson, also known as ‘Trooper’ in Olympic Gardens, St. Andrew, Jamaica back in 2009.
The “Don Gorgon” who was granted bail in 2012, was taken into custody four weeks ago after his bail was revoked by High Court judge Justice Martin Gayle, who ordered that the murder trial should begin immediately.
Prosecutors argued the former Downsound Records artist and his co-accused entered a yard and fired several rounds at a man who fled the premises. Johnson, who was also in the yard, was fatally shot.
The main prosecution witness testified that Ninjaman who was armed with a gun, fired twice at him and he fled.
