Coronation Street spoilers follow.
Coronation Street's Kelly Neelan was charged with murder tonight (May 12) as the Seb Franklin and Nina Lucas attack storyline took another turn.
Kelly was present when the gang confronted Seb and Nina, slapping the latter, but didn't chase them down and beat them up, which was what resulted in Seb's death.
Unfortunately for her, Corey Brent (who was responsible, alongside Eli Higginson) went to the police with his dad and made a statement implicating her, while the police found Seb's blood on her clothes.
The police interviewer then played the voicemail Seb left Abi just before the attack, which featured Kelly laughing. Kelly tried to plead that she didn't physically assault them beyond the slap, but the interviewer seemed unconvinced due to her changing stories.
Kelly's foster father Imran Habeeb sat in on the police interview and later went back to tell Toyah Battersby about the police charging her with murder and GBH, and needing her to go to court tomorrow.
He said he believed Kelly when she said that Corey lied to the police and was really responsible, but the question now is: how can he prove it?
Elsewhere in the episode, Summer Spellman opened up about her own guilt over last week's events to Paul Foreman, and has started skipping school because of it.
Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights at 7.30pm and 8.30pm.
