Stone accused's diary 'reveals plan to buy gun'

Rod Minchin

The written ramblings of one of two men accused of plotting to kill music star Joss Stone have been shown to a jury.

Kevin Liverpool (35) wrote down in a diary his thoughts about the Devon-based singer.

One entry said: "God doesn't give a f***. Protect yourself from this. Remember Jocelyn Stone. God let her take the piss."

Other entries talked of the need to buy a semi-automatic gun, a gun holder, a silencer and infrared equipment, as well as a "ninja sword".

Liverpool and co-accused Junior Bradshaw (32), are charged with plotting to rob and kill Miss Stone in June 2011.

They deny the charges.

The jury heard that in the diary there were references to slang words, such as "wet" – meaning to repeatedly stab someone until their clothes are soaked with blood – and "popo" – short for police.

The trial continues.
