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.
