LONDON — Prosecutors said Monday two men accused of plotting to rob and kill soul singer Joss Stone planned to decapitate her, then dump her body in a river.

The suspects, Junior Bradshaw and Kevin Liverpool, were arrested in June 2011, close to the singer’s house after suspicious neighbors reported them to police. They never reached her house.

The motive for the plot was not clear, but prosecutor Simon Morgan said the men may have targeted Stone for her money or because they disliked her links with the royal family.
