School cleaner pleads guilty to murder of Stephanie Scott

Vincent Stanford has pleaded guilty this morning in court.

School cleaner Vincent Stanford has pleaded guilty to the murder and rape of schoolteacher Stephanie Scott.
His guilty plea in the NSW Supreme Court comes just six weeks after his twin brother Marcus Stanford pleaded guilty at Griffith Local Court to being an accessory after the fact to murder.
Ms Scott, 26, was last seen on Easter Sunday in April 2015 at her workplace, Leeton High School, where she had gone to prepare lesson plans for the time she would be away on her honeymoon.
Her body was discovered in some burnt-out scrub in Cocoparra National Park the following Friday, the day before she was due walk down the aisle to marry partner Aaron Leeson-Woolley.
More to come.
