It's probably for the best that Joss Stone had no inkling of what was allegedly being plotted against her before two men were arrested on suspicion of conspiring to kill the singer.

Per BBC News, a detective constable testified today in the suspects' ongoing trial in London that one of the accused, 35-year-old Kevin Liverpool, had kept a diary in which he had written down Stone's date and place of birth and notes about her career; and made a list, numbering 1 through 3, "rob," "wet/injure" and "death," with wet being slang for stabbing.

Liverpool and 32-year-old Junior Bradshaw have denied conspiring to murder, rob and cause grievous bodily harm.

DC Katherine Joyner also testified that Liverpool wrote in his diary that he needed to buy a semiautomatic gun, a silencer, infrared equipment and a "ninja sword." She said that another entry spoke of the need to open a bank account and buy a hooded shirt, car insurance and a safe.

Authorities have said that a samurai sword was found in the defendants' car when they were arrested, along with a knife and hammer. The diary was seized during a search of Liverpool's apartment after his arrest, Joyner said.

In the first news that Liverpool had other artists on his mind besides Stone, the detective constable told the court that Beyoncé, Chris Brown, R. Kelly, Eminem, Dizzee Rascal, Craig Davis and Girls Aloud were also mentioned by name in the diary.

Prosecutors said during opening statements this week that several handwritten notes were found in the suspects' possession that mapped out a plan to decapitate Stone and then "find a river to dump her."
