Two men who were convicted of plotting to kidnap and murder British soul singer Joss Stone in 2011 have appeared in court to appeal their prison sentences.

Junior Bradshaw, 33, and Kevin Liverpool, 36, were jailed in 2013, two years after police smashed a conspiracy to snatch the You Had Me star from her countryside home in south-west England, decapitate her and throw her corpse into a river.

Bradshaw received 18 years behind bars, while Liverpool was given life in prison.

However, the two men, who denied the allegations, are challenging their sentences and appeared at the Court of Appeal in London on Friday (16May14) to argue their case.

Three judges will consider their request and deliver a verdict on Tuesday (20May14).
