Joss Stone murder plot trial to begin in Exeter next week
The trial of two men accused of hatching a murder plot involving singer Joss Stone will begin in Exeter next week.
Junior Bradshaw, 31, and Kevin Liverpool, 34, are accused of conspiring to kill the star last year. The pair are also accused of conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm and conspiracy to rob.
They deny all the charges, which relate to an alleged incident at Stone’s home in Devon in June last year. A trial is due to start on Wednesday at Exeter Crown Court.
Judge Francis Gilbert QC adjourned proceedings last year in order to allow the defence team more time to explore further medical evidence relating to the case.

There had previously been question marks over whether Bradshaw would be fit to stand trial, having been moved to a mental health unit in March 2012.
He and Liverpool, both of St Stephen’s Close, Manchester, were arrested on the St Andrews Estate in Cullompton on June 13 2011 after being seen driving in the area around the village of Langford in a Fiat Punto, several miles from the singer’s home near Ashill.
It is not clear whether Stone – who found fame nearly a decade ago through songs such as Fell In Love With A Boy and Super Duper Love – was at home at the time of the incident.
She is a friend of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and has an estimated £9 million fortune. Her latest album, Soul Sessions II, was released last month.
