Will Graham back up Cain? Or is the mechanic going to jail for Joe's murder?

Cain Dingle is going to be arrested by the police AGAIN for the murder of Joe Tate in Emmerdale next week.

Cain, played by Jeff Hordley, initially seems to be having a good week as Kerry agrees to let him have access to Kyle, while the investigation into Joe’s death seems to have gone quiet.

But then the police come calling at Butler’s Farm and they search the place. Rather thank keeping his cool, Cain flips, refusing to answer any questions and refusing to accompany the officers to the station.
