Two men charged with plotting to rob and commit grievous bodily harm against British singer Joss Stone appeared in court Thursday in Exeter, England.
Junior Bradshaw, 30, and Kevin Liverpool, 33, both from Manchester, spoke only to confirm their names during the short hearing and were remanded in custody until their trial date, which is set for next month.
The men were arrested on Monday in Cullompton, a village believed to be near Stone’s home, after vigilant neighbors became suspicious of their behavior.
