    Joss Stone can no doubt breathe a little easier today.

    The two men who were accused of conspiring to murder the singer were found guilty at the Exeter Crown Court in London on Wednesday, per the BBC.

    Kevin Liverpool, 35, received life imprisonment with a minimum term of 10 years and eight months, while the sentencing of 32-year-old Junior Bradshaw was delayed pending psychiatric reports.

    It only took the jury a little over four hours to reach a unanimous verdict.

    The BBC quotes Stone's mother, Wendy Joseph, telling reporters outside the courthouse that "Joss would like to thank everyone for their support and all their good wishes. The whole family is relieved the trial is over and these men are no longer in a position to cause harm to anyone."

    Liverpool and Bradshaw were arrested in June 2011 near Stone's home in Devon after suspicious neighbors reported them to authorities. They were reportedly found with a samurai sword, hammer and knives, as well as gloves and black bags. During the trial, prosecutors revealed the two men allegedly planned to decapitate the singer before dumping her body in a river.
