1.30pm: The identical twin brother of school cleaner and alleged murderer Vincent Stanford has landed in Sydney with NSW detectives after a flight from Adelaide and will face court on Thursday afternoon.
Police will allege Marcus Stanford, 24, received a number of items in the post connected to the death of Stephanie Scott, a teacher at Leeton.
Ms Scott, 26, an English and drama teacher at Leeton High School, was last seen on April 5, Easter Sunday, preparing lessons before her honeymoon the following week.
Her burnt body was found in the Cocoparra National Park on April 10, the day before she was due to get married.
Vincent Stanford has been charged with aggravated sexual assault and murdering Ms Scott between 1.40pm and 2pm on April 5.
Marcus Stanford allegedly received the items about April 8.
He allegedly continued to assist his brother until at least April 31, according to the court charge sheet.
Marcus, a labourer on a flower farm, was arrested at his home in Forreston, in the Adelaide Hills, in a dramatic early morning raid on Wednesday.
He appeared in a South Australian court wearing a Star Wars T-shirt as NSW police successfully applied for his extradition.
He boarded a Qantas flight from Adelaide about 9.30am on Thursday and is due to arrive in Sydney at noon before appearing in Central Local Court on Thursday afternoon.
Police expect to lay a charge of accessory after the fact to murder, alleging that Marcus Stanford "did assist" Vincent Stanford between April 8 and April 31.
Fairfax Media understands he did not tell police about items he had received in the post from his brother.
