Joss Stone Plotters Found Guilty

The two men who planned to kidnap and murder soul singer Joss Stone were convicted.
Junior Bradshaw, 32, and Kevin Liverpool, 35, had intended to kidnap Stone from her mansion, steal her estimated $16 million fortune and then cut her head off and dump her corpse in a river.
That's some scary stuff.
The plot was foiled when neighbors noticed the twosome behaving suspiciously.
WENN reports that the plotters denied the allegations, but the jury convicted them, as balaclavas, a knife and a Samurai sword were found in the car when the men were arrested in June 2011. Further evidence, such as handwritten notes detailing the plan and naming Stone as the victim, were found in their home.
The duo was found guilty of conspiracy to murder, conspiracy to commit assault causing grievous bodily harm, and conspiracy to rob. They are awaiting a sentence.
Poor Joss. We are so glad they never got to her. Let's hope this conviction brings closure to a scary time in her life.
What is the proper sentence for a crime like this?
