EARLIER @ 7.30am: The twin brother of the man who has pleaded guilty to the rape and murder of NSW School teacher Stephanie Scott is expected to walk free from jail today.

Marcus Stanford was last month sentenced to 15 months behind bars after pleading guilty to being an accessory after the fact to murder.

However, given time already served since being arrested last year, he is expected to be released today.

The court heard that Marcus helped his twin brother, former school cleaner Vincent Stanford, with disposing of evidence of Ms Scott’s murder.

Vincent mailed an envelope to Marcus with Ms Scott’s engagement ring, another ring given to her by her mother and her driver’s licence.

He then pawned the jewellery to a local Adelaide jeweller and burned her licence.
