Joss Stone

The trial of two men accused of hatching a murder plot in Devon involving singer Joss Stone has been adjourned until next year.

Junior Bradshaw, 31, and Kevin Liverpool, 34, are accused of conspiring to kill the star last year.

The pair are also accused of conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm and conspiracy to rob.

They deny all the charges, which relate to an incident at Stone’s home in Devon in June last year.

Their trial was due to begin at Exeter Crown Court on Monday; however, Judge Francis Gilbert QC adjourned the proceedings in order to allow the defence team more time to explore further medical evidence relating to the case.

There had previously been question marks over whether Bradshaw would be fit to stand trial, having been moved to a mental health unit in March.

He and Liverpool, both of St Stephen’s Close, Manchester, were arrested on the St Andrews Estate in Cullompton on June 13 last year after being seen driving in the area around the village of Langford in a Fiat Punto, several miles from the singer’s home near Ashill.

It is not clear whether Stone – who found fame nearly a decade ago through songs such as Fell In Love With A Boy and Super Duper Love – was at home at the time of the incident.

The trial was adjourned until March 2013.

The men were remanded in custody.
