Joss Stone accused: trial postponed
Concern over one defendant’s fitness to enter plea.
The trial of two men accused of conspiring to kill singer Joss Stone has been put off until next year.
Junior Bradshaw, aged 30, and Kevin Liverpool, aged 33, both from St Stephens Close, Manchester, will be tried in March at Exeter Crown Court.
They are both accused of conspiracy to murder, rob and cause grievous bodily harm to the 24-year-old singer between January 1 and June 14 last year.
Liverpool has denied all the charges and Bradshaw has not yet pleaded.
