The two men charged in the plot against singer Joss Stone have been remanded in custody, after a British court ruled that the charges and allegations against the pair were to serious to allow them to be released on bail.

Junior Bradshaw, 30, and Kevin Liverpool, 33, both from St. Stephen's Close Manchester appeared in court in Exeter and were charged with conspiracy to commit robbery and conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm. They appeared before magistrates speaking only to confirm their identities. According to Britain's Press Assocaiation, both suspects appeared in court casually dressed, Liverpool in a black T-shirt and Bradshaw, who had dreadlocks pulled into short pigtails, wearing a grey sweatshirt.
