Seb’s death aired on the soap in May, with a gang of thugs were responsible for the murder, including Corey.  

Seb and Nina were attacked by a gang of teens – including Corey Brent (Maximus Evans) and Kelly Neelan (Millie Gibson) – because of their goth culture, in scenes which mirrored the real-life murder of Sophie Lancaster, who died in 2007 aged 20 when she was stamped to death for being a goth. 

Kelly – played by Millie Gibson – was charged with Seb’s murder.

Seb’s grieving mother Abi was told the news by a police officer, who explained: ‘In light of new evidence, the police have charged a number of people. Kelly Neelan has been charged with GBH for the assault on Nina – and for the murder of your son.’  

However, gang member Corey (Maximus Evans) – who was the main instigator in the vicious attack – avoided charges after his girlfriend Asha Alahan (Tanisha Gorey) offered him an alibi by claiming he was with her on the night of the murder.

When asked by Kevin: ‘What about Corey?’ the officer responded: ‘He’s not been charged yet, however this is an ongoing investigation and we will update you with all developments.’

She also told distraught Abi: ‘Eli Higginson and Jason Downing have pleaded guilty to GBH for the attack on Nina and are now on remand.’ 

Not wanting her to take the fall for the murder, Imran Habeeb (played by Charlie de Melo) is set to defend Kelly – his foster daughter – in the pivotal trial.

It’s also been teased that upcoming episodes will include flashbacks from the assault as actor Harry was seen back on set and in character as Seb, earlier this month.

Fans won’t have long to wait until the all-important trial plays out, with scenes expected to hit the soap in August.
