Man caged over Joss death plot
A MAN who joined his flatmate’s plot to rob and kill international pop star Joss Stone has been jailed for 18 years.
Junior Bradshaw, 32, acted as the driver for Kevin Liverpool, 35, who plotted to kidnap the star and bank more than £1million.
The pair had driven from Manchester to Miss Stone’s home in mid-Devon armed with an arsenal of weapons.
Notes written by Liverpool show they wanted to behead her because of her royal family links.
The duo were armed with a sword, three knives, two hammers, masks, gloves and a hosepipe when they were arrested in June 2011. The pair, who harboured a deep hatred for the singer, told police they were lost but officers became wary and discovered the cache in the boot.
The pair were convicted in April of conspiracy to murder and conspiracy to rob.
Liverpool was sentenced immediately to life imprisonment and told to serve a minimum term of 10 years and eight months.
Sentencing against Bradshaw was adjourned but an Exeter Crown Court official said yesterday: “Mr Bradshaw was sentenced to 18 years’ imprisonment for conspiracy to murder.”
