Defendants were arrested in 2011 near the singer's home.
A British jury has reportedly reached a guilty verdict nearly two years after a pair of men were arrested near the home of U.K. soul artist Joss Stone on suspicion of conspiracy to rob and murder the singer.
According to live coverage from BBC News correspondent Jon Kay, Kevin Liverpool, 35, and Junior Bradshaw, 32, received unanimous guilty verdicts in the Exeter Crown Court, where the jury took just four hours to reach a decision on Wednesday (Apr. 3). Liverpool received a life imprisonment with a minimum 10 years in jail, while Bradshaw's sentencing was delayed.
Bradshaw and Liverpool, both natives of Longsight, Manchester, denied conspiracy against Stone after being arrested in June 2011. The men were found near Stone's home in Devon, England, armed with swords, rope and a body bag; neighbors had alerted police to their suspicious activity.
