2 men in court over plot to target Joss Stone
Question of the Day
LONDON (AP) - Two men are due in court to face charges of plotting to rob and assault British soul singer Joss Stone.
Junior Bradshaw, 30, and 33-year-old Kevin Liverpool were arrested Monday morning near Stone’s house in the town of Cullompton, 175 miles (280 kilometers) southwest of London, after residents reported a suspicious-looking vehicle.
News reports said the men had swords, rope, a body bag and plans of the singer’s secluded house.
They are due in court Thursday on charges of conspiracy to rob and conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm.
The 24-year-old singer said in a statement that she was “absolutely fine and getting on with life as normal.”
The Grammy-winning singer is due to start a European tour next month.
