Marcus Stanford has pleaded guilty to being an accessory to the murder of Leeton school teacher Stephanie Scott.

ABC News reports, Stanford is the twin brother of Vincent Stanford, who is accused of raping and murdering Ms Scott, 26, in April last year.

Her burnt body was found in the Cocoparra National Park, about 70 kilometres from the town of Leeton, where she worked as a teacher at Leeton High School.

She was killed just days before she was due to marry.

Vincent Stanford, a 25-year-old cleaner at Leeton High School, was arrested four days after her disappearance.

His twin, Marcus Stanford, was arrested in June last year and charged with being an accessory after the fact.

Marcus Stanford is expected to be sentenced in May.

  • This was such a terribly sad case.
    I feel so sorry for her family, her soon to have been husband & the students this beautiful young lady taught.
    Hopefully justice is served!
    Judges really need to start handing out harsh penalties, it seems like every day there is a new news report of someone being violently killed.
    Rest In Peace Stephanie.


  • Hope he gets what he deserves.


  • Horrible crime. Much more needs to be done to prevent violence against women – it is way too common.


  • How can any amount of jail time make up for the loss of a beautiful young woman.


  • Excuse me but i hope they both Rot in prison for the rest of their lives
