Eastenders Spoilers – Killing Leo King
Whitney was stalked and terrorized for months by Leo King (Tom Wells). He even hid in her attic and peered through a hole to watch and hear everything. Then, things came to a head and Leo ended up dead. It was self-defense, but Whitney panicked and didn’t report it immediately to the police. Instead, she asked Mick Carter (Danny Dyer) for help. The plan was for her to get rid of the murder weapon and he’d clean up the murder scene.
However, when the Thames tragedy had police swarming everywhere, Whitney confessed to an officer with the murder weapon in her hand.

Now the trial has begun and even though Whitney doesn’t feel confident, everyone is telling her it will be okay. She is told to tell the truth about everything.
