    Two men are accused of conspiring to murder Joss Stone. One of them says he had no idea what the plan was when they took off from Manchester early one morning in June 2011.

    Junior Bradshaw, 32, testified in court today in London that he doesn't remember being arrested along with codefendant Kevin Liverpool, 35, near Stone's Devon home with suspicious items in their car; that he had never heard of the singer before this case and that he thought he and Liverpool were "just going on a day out."

    "You left at 2 a.m.," charged prosecutor Simon Morgan, per BBC News. "You know the difference between night and day. So where would you be going at 2 a.m.?"

    Joss Stone suspect kept "death" diary

    "I don't know," Bradshaw replied. The suspect also testified Monday that he once spent 10 months being treated for schizophrenia at a Manchester hospital. Per The Guardian, he said that he stopped taking medication a few months after his release in April 2010 because he didn't think he needed it.

    Bradshaw underwent a mental-health evaluation after his arrest. "When he was first admitted, he was presenting in a very confused, quite bizarre way. He said he was at hospital to go sightseeing and go shopping," testified Dr. Simon Crowther, a clinical psychologist at the hospital.

    Joss Stone: No idea anyone was out to get her

    Both Bradshaw and Liverpool have denied charges of conspiracy to commit murder, rob and cause grievous bodily harm.

    A detective constable testified last week that a diary had been found at Liverpool's home containing notes about Stone and a to-do list that included "rob," "wet/injure" and "death." 

    Stone herself testified that she had no idea anyone was out to get her until Liverpool and Bradshaw's arrest.
