A man accused of conspiring to rob and murder soul singer Joss Stone has been moved to a Manchester mental health facility ahead of his trial, Exeter Crown Court has heard.

Junior Bradshaw, 31, is accused of plotting crimes against the 'Fell In Love With A Boy' singer at her home in Devon between January and June last year.

A second man, Kevin Liverpool, 34, has been accused of the same offenses.

Bradshaw has been moved to a specialist unit in the North West where he will undergo assessment. The test results, due in June, will determine whether he is fit to stand trail.

At a previous hearing, it was revealed that Bradshaw suffers from schizophrenia.

Bradshaw and Liverpool, both Manchester residents, were arrested near Stone's home in Ashill, Devon on 13th June last year after being spotted driving in the vicinity.

Liverpool, who was remanded in custody by the judge, has denied the allegations. Bradshaw is yet to issue a plea.

Both men are scheduled to stand trial in August.
