Joss Stone murder plot pair get sentences cut
Junior Bradshaw and Kevin Liverpool were found guilty of conspiracy to murder and conspiracy to rob last year
Tuesday 20 May 2014
Two men convicted of plotting to rob and kill international pop star Joss Stone have won challenges against the length of their sentences.
Junior Bradshaw, 33, had his 18-year sentence cut to 10 years by three Court of Appeal judges in London.
Kevin Liverpool, 36, who was originally given a life sentence with a minimum term of 10 years and eight months, had his minimum reduced to six-and-a-half years.
The pair, of St Stephen's Close, Longsight, Manchester, were found guilty of conspiracy to murder and conspiracy to rob following a three-week trial at Exeter Crown Court last year.
They drove from Manchester to Miss Stone's home in mid-Devon with an arsenal of weapons to rob and kill her.
