Beyoncé, Cheryl Cole and Craig David were among the names mentioned in the diaries of the two men accused of plotting to murder soul singer Joss Stone.

The artists were mentioned among the rambling entries in a 2007 edition diary found in the home of Kevin Liverpool and Junior Bradshaw, who are charged with plotting to kill Stone in June 2011. The entries also showed the plotters were planning to steal as little as £2,000 from Stone when they were arrested seven miles from her Devon home, a court heard yesterday, the Telegraph reports.

Liverpool wrote his thoughts about the singer in the diary with one entry reading: "God doesn't give a fuck. Protect yourself from this. Remember Jocelyn Stone. God let her take the piss." Another note had the figures of £2,000 to £6,000 next to the word "robbery" with other pages referencing "rob, wet, injured, dead". Other mentioned buying a semi-automatic gun, a gun holder, a silencer and infrared equipment, as well as a "ninja sword".

Liverpool and Bradshaw are charged with plotting to rob and kill Stone, who they called a 'she-Devil', before dumping her decapitated body in a river. The pair were arrested in June 2011 a few miles from Stone's home near Ashill, mid-Devon, with an arsenal of weapons including a samurai sword, knives, a hammer, black bags and gloves – in the boot of their car. It is alleged they were part of a gang - the other members of which have not been traced.

Bradshaw, 32, and Liverpool, 35, both from Manchester, deny charges of conspiracy to murder, conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm and conspiracy to commit robbery. The trail continues.
