A 32-year-old man from Manchester, England was sentenced to 18 years in jail after being found guilty of plotting to murder and rob the singer Joss Stone back in 2011.

Though the man, Junior Bradshaw, had been found guilty three months ago, his sentencing was delayed for a psychiatric evaluation.

According to the BBC, doctors found that Bradshaw did not require hospital treatment for the schizophrenia and mental impairment that he talked about in the original trial.

The judge also told the defendant in the latest hearing that although he has an IQ of just 65 (someone who has an IQ below 70 is usually defined as mentally handicapped), he understood what he was involved in.

Two years ago, Bradshaw, along with another man named Kevin Liverpool, were found driving in Devon, England where Stone lived with a body bag and a variety of weapons including a Samurai sword, two hammers and an undisclosed number of knives. The two men were also found with notes detailing a plan to behead the singer and dump her body in the river because of her links to the Royal Family. Stone was a guest at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding.
