Scary stuff: Days after news was released that the two men on trial for plotting against singer Joss Stone planned to decapitate her and dump her body in a river, new information came out that indicates Stone might not have been their only target.
The suspects, Junior Bradshaw, 32, and Kevin Liverpool, 35, were arrested in June 2011 by Stone's home with a samurai sword, a lock knife and a hammer in their possession. Though they deny all charges, a detective who testified in their trial yesterday told of a diary the police had found in Liverpool's home. In it, according to the BBC, Liverpool mentioned his need for a semi-automatic gun, a silencer, infrared equipment and a "ninja sword."
Liverpool also noted Stone's date and place of birth in his diary, and included a biography of her musical career. He reportedly made a list numbered 1, 2 and 3, for "rob," "wet/injure" and "death," per BBC ("wet" is street slang for stab). Allegedly, the two conspired to harm the singer because of her ties to the British royal family, reports Showbiz Tonite, and financial motives might play into it as well.
But that's not all: According to E!, the detective told the court that Beyonce, Chris Brown, R. Kelly, Eminem, Dizzee Rascal, Craig Davis and Girls Aloud were mentioned in the diary as well. No further details regarding these artists were released.
A few days before this testimony, Stone herself told the court of her lax home security arrangements. The 25-year-old singer said she rarely used her alarm and did not lock her front door -- though since police informed her that someone was trying to kill her, she has changed her habits.
Just last December, reports surfaced that Justin Bieber was the target of a gruesome murder plot. A convicted killer imprisoned in New Mexico allegedly planned to castrate and strangle Bieber and his bodyguard in New York.
In both cases mentioned above, the murder plots failed. Joss Stone's accused trial continues.
