Joss Stone

One of the two men accused of conspiring to murder Joss Stone yesterday entered a plea of not guilty to the various charges he faces, including conspiracy to murder, conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm and conspiracy to commit robbery.

Kevin Liverpool and Junior Bradshaw, both from Manchester, were back in Exeter Crown Court for a routine hearing yesterday. As previously reported, the two men were arrested near the singer’s Devon home back in June, seemingly with plans and equipment to harm and maybe kill the singer before stealing from her property.

Liverpool entered the not guilty plea, while Bradshaw chose not to enter a plea at all at this time. The two men were remanded in custody, and will reappear in court in December, though their actual trial is unlikely to happen until next August.

Stone did not attend the hearing, though her mother was in the public gallery.
