The prosecution in the trial of Kevin Liverpool, 35, and Junior Bradshaw, 32, is reading a series of text messages sent from Liverpool to someone called Junior Judge. Two of the messages read:
I'm looking to take out Jocelyn [Joss Stone's real name] now and set it off ... Let's do this thing, make a move.
Make the move on Tuesday morning. I want the soldiers here by 1230. I want you to make the move. Make sure you get that car.
Kevin Liverpool and Junior Bradshaw, both of St Stephens Close in Manchester, stand accused of conspiring to rob, murder and commit grievous bodily harm against Joss Stone.
Both deny all the charges.
