JUNIOR school teacher and kleptomaniac Marina Murray was yesterday sentenced to three years in jail. Wearing a black jacket and grey tights, the attractive teacher trembled in the dock as she was sentenced and could not stop shaking even when she was granted leave to appeal against her sentence and released on R750 bail.

Murray, 33, a Grade 6 teacher at Victoria Park Grey Primary School, was nabbed for shoplifting in November last year.
