The trial of two men accused of plotting to kill singer Joss Stone is taking place at Exeter Crown Court. Junior Bradshaw and Kevin Liverpool from Huddersfield are accused of conspiring to murder the Devon singer in 2011
A man accused of plotting to murder Joss Stone has told a court that he'd never heard of the singer until his arrest. Junior Bradshaw said that he thought 'he was just going on a day out' on the day he was arrested not far from her East Devon home.
Mr Bradshaw and his co-defendant Kevin Liverpool both deny charges of plotting to rob and murder the singer. From Exeter Crown Court, Richard Lawrence reports.
One of the men accused of plotting to kill Joss Stone has told a jury he had never heard of the singer before his arrest. Junior Bradshaw said he thought he was going for ‘a day out’ in the country when he travelled to Devon with flatmate Kevin Liverpool.
Bradshaw told Exeter Crown Court he had no idea that the car he was driving contained an arsenal of weapons and said he did not know why there were two knives, two hammers and two balaclavas in it.
The former mental patient said he was sharing a small flat in Manchester but had no inkling about the plan he was allegedly cooking up to attack Joss Stone at her home in Devon. He denies all charges, as does his fellow defendant, Kevin Liverpool.
