Joss Stone murder plotters appeal against sentences

Two men convicted of plotting to rob and kill international pop star Joss Stone in Devon are to appeal against the length of their sentences.

Three judges at the Court of Appeal in London will hear challenges by Kevin Liverpool and Junior Bradshaw, who were found guilty of conspiracy to murder and conspiracy to rob following a three-week trial at Exeter Crown Court last year.

Judge Francis Gilbert, the Recorder of Exeter, branded Liverpool a danger to the public and said he targeted Miss Stone to get more than £1 million from her.

"You intended to rob her and kill her and dump her body in the river, according to your words, and then leave the country with your accomplice Junior Bradshaw. You had no reason to target her except that she was a wealthy young woman as she was a successful singer."

– Judge Francis Gilbert
