Singer “baffled” as to why she was targeted by two men in their thirties

Two men have been convicted of plotting to murder soul singer Joss Stone.

Junior Bradshaw (32) and Kevin Liverpool (35) ? who were arrested in June 2011 after they were seen acting suspiciously near the Tell Me ’bout It singer's home in Cullompton ? were found guilty by a jury in Exeter Crown Court, southwest England, of hatching a plan to rob and kill her.

A jury found them guilty of conspiracy to murder and conspiracy to rob after a three-week trial.

Liverpool was sentenced to life with a minimum term of 10 years and eight months; sentencing of Bradshaw was adjourned.

In a statement outside the court, Joss' mother, Wendy Joseph, said: "Joss and myself and indeed our whole family are relieved that the trial is now over and that these men are no longer in a position to cause harm to anyone.

"Joss would like to thank everybody for their support and their good wishes."

After the incident, Joss (37), who wasn’t present for the trial, said she was "baffled" by it and didn't understand why she was targeted.

She said: "I'm fine, if slightly baffled by it. I can't stress about what didn't happen; that would seem silly. Every job has positives and negatives and I guess this was one of the negatives that comes with mine. I don't expect life to be perfect. I just try to make it as fun as possible."
