Su­ing over mur­der case

Fraser Coast Chronicle - - NATION -

REL­A­TIVES of a NSW teacher who was raped and mur­dered by a cleaner in 2015 are su­ing the State Govern­ment.

Stephanie Scott was killed on Easter Sun­day in 2015 by Vin­cent Stan­ford, who is serv­ing a life sen­tence.

The NSW Depart­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion was not made aware of claims filed in the state’s District Court be­fore pro­ceed­ings be­gan this week.

“The cir­cum­stances re­sult­ing in th­ese pro­ceed­ings are sen­si­tive and all ef­forts will be made to re­spond to the claims ap­pro­pri­ately,” a depart­ment spokesman said.
