Judge Throws The Book at Joss Stone Murder Plotters

The two men (Junior Bradshaw and Kevin Liverpool ) involved in a plot to murder and rob soul singer Joss Stone in June 2011 have been sentenced to prison.

After being found guilty three months ago, the judge sentenced Bradshaw to 18 years behind bars following his medical exam, which shows he suffers from schizophrenia and IQ of 65, while Liverpool got a life sentence because he was the mastermind behind the horrendous scheme.

The men denied trying to kill the 25-year-old singer, who was at her home at the time, even though they were found near her home with various weapons including samurai swords, and a body bag. But thanks to some locals, their plans were prevented from following through.

Stone's mother Wendy issued a statement for her daughter during Liverpool's sentencing: "Joss would like to thank everyone for their support and all their good wishes..the whole family is relieved the trial is over and these men are no longer in a position to cause harm to anyone."
