Two guilty of plot to kill singer Joss Stone
Two men were found guilty of plotting to murder and rob British Grammy Award-winning singer Joss Stone Wednesday.
Junior Bradshaw, 32, and Kevin Liverpool, 35, planned to behead the singer before throwing her body in a river near her home in southwest England, prosecutors said.
The pair had a deep hatred for Stone because she had performed at a charity event organized by princes William and Harry and she attended the wedding of William and Kate Middleton.
Prosecutors said handwritten notes found at the men’s flat described Britain’s Queen Elizabeth and Stone as “devils” and talked of “destroying the queen’s system.”
Liverpool was jailed for life with a minimum term of 10 years and eight months after being convicted of conspiracy to murder and to rob. Bradshaw will be sentenced later.
Both men denied the charges and no direct forensic evidence was found to link them to any weapons.
