Pair 'plotted to murder Joss Stone'

  • Two men plotted to rob and murder British singer Joss Stone, a jury was told on Monday.

    Kevin Liverpool and Junior Bradshaw are accused of driving from Manchester, England to near the soul songstress’ home in Devon in June 2011.

    They deny charges of conspiracy to murder, to cause GBH and rob.

    Speaking on the case at Exeter Crown Court, prosecutor Simon Morgan QC told the jury of 10 men and two women: "This case is about a decision by a group of individuals, of which these defendants are two, to rob and kill Joss Stone.

    "Your job will be to determine whether you think these two are part of a plot."

    The charges span a period from January to June 2011.

    The pair were arrested on June 13, 2011 after being seen driving a few miles from Stone’s home.

    The court heard the singer was at home at the time of the incident.

    Bradshaw, 32, and Liverpool, 35, deny all charges. The trial is due to last for around three weeks.
