Emmerdale killer Meena Jutla found guilty and sent down for 75 years after tense trial
Emmerdale’s very own serial killer Meena Jutla was finally found guilty by a jury in tonight’s episode of the ITV soap.In tense scenes, Meena appeared in court to receive the jury’s final verdict after a court case wrought with tension, featuring testimonies from her victims’ families and her sister Manpreet.She was charged with the murders of Leanna Cavanagh, Andrea Tate and Ben Tucker, along with the kidnap and attempted murder of her sister Manpreet and Vinny Dingle. Her first victim, Nadine, wasn’t brought into the charges as there was insufficient evidence - though her sister still turned up at court to see Meena finally brought to justice and was disappointed to see that it hadn't.Her reign of terror didn’t stop with her charges, either, as she also attempted to drown Victoria Sugden in the river during the survival weekend, almost killed the Tate’s pooch Princess by locking her in a hot car, and broke into Victoria’s house numerous times.Though Meena put on a stellar performance in the dock, she couldn’t fool the court - much to the relief of viewers watching at home.Speaking of the end of her storyline, actress Paige Sandhu told Daily Star: "I always thought that Meena’s storyline was going to have to come to an end at some point, because you just can’t let a villain as bad as Meena just carry on."There would be no one left in the village, so her storyline has to come to an end at some point."She continued: "When I thought about how the writers were going to do that, I thought she has to die because it’s the most epic thing.

Emmerdale’s Ian and Nadine DNA connection ‘sealed’ as fans predict Meena death twist
Emmerdale looks set to take a turn for the sinister as serial killer Meena Jutla's trial ramps up, as a DNA connection between her prison guard Ian and one of her former victims has been 'exposed'.In recent scenes, avid viewers have seen the sister of Meena's first ever victim Nadine appear in court to see the killer brought to justice.But Meena is only charged with the murders of Andrea Tate, Leanna Cavanagh and Ben Tucker - not her old pal Nadine, as the police couldn't find sufficient evidence to rule out a suicide, despite Meena confessing to the crime several times.Carol, Nadine's sister, had to flee from the public viewing area as she couldn't stand to see Meena escape justice for her beloved sister.But fans have now figured out a key DNA connection which could see Meena face more than a few years in prison, as they suspect her prison guard Ian is the brother of the late Nadine.Meena and Ian have been getting closer recently, with him bringing her gifts and clearly lusting after her as they travelled to court and back.But could it all be an act to exact the perfect revenge for his dead sister, as he ends up murdering Meena behind bars after the trial comes to a close? Viewers certainly think so.Taking to social media, one eagle-eyed fan theorised: "I think Ian the jail guard is the link to Meena's best friend she killed, probably her brother, and he may kill her off. Now that would be interesting, Meena dying dead in her cell.

Emmerdale’s Andrea Tate ‘still alive’ as eagle-eyed fans spot major Leyla phone clue
Emmerdale’s Andrea Tate could still be alive after she was supposedly murdered in the maize maze by serial killer Meena Jutla.In Friday’s (April 8) episode of the ITV soap, fans saw Leyla Cavanagh speaking in hushed tones on the phone to somebody, arranging to meet them at a later date.Leyla insisted it was a work call, but whispered into the phone: "Hi, I thought I was supposed to be ringing you? No, I can’t, not right now. Do you know what? I’ll meet you later, okay?"And many fans think Leyla could be harbouring Andrea, ready to whisk her to Meena’s trial next week and help deliver a guilty verdict for the murderer.Meena is currently accused of murdering Andrea, along with Ben Tucker and Leanna Cavanagh - as well as attempting to kill her sister Manpreet and Vinny Dingle.But Andrea’s testimony could be just what is needed to finally bring her to justice.Another key hint fell as Gabby and Dawn discovered Andrea’s ex Jamie was still alive after faking his own death - and could see the parents of Millie reunited, after their house was left abandoned.Taking to Facebook, one eagle-eyed fan penned: "So who wonders who called Leyla tonight? I’m still thinking it’s Andrea!"Another agreed: "There was no fuss or funeral mentioned for Andrea, so I’ve thought all along that she was alive.""Did the actress who plays Andrea do a leaving video? I can’t remember seeing one.
