On Tuesday (January 28), Marlon pleaded with the Hotten police to believe him when he explained he wasn’t responsible for Graham’s murder.

The Emmerdale police remain deeply incompetent.

But, despite only having circumstantial evidence, they charged him.

Of course, we know that the man who REALLY murdered Graham was rapist Pierce Harris, who remains at large and is not even on the cops’ radar.

Those watching from home were horrified on Marlon’s behalf, with many slamming the police for missing vital evidence – including Pierce’s DNA on Graham’s body.

Others questioned how there was even CCTV in the woods.

As soon as Graham’s corpse was found on Monday (January 27), the local police made pub chef Marlon their prime suspect due to his open rivalry with the deceased.

But fans think they could do a better job of investigating the crime, calling out a series of blunders.

One wrote: “Makes no sense!! Never heard of DNA? Because Pierce’s will be all over Graham!”

Another added: “What I don’t get is that they’ll have Pierce’s DNA on record from raping Rhona and Graham’s body must be covered in his DNA?”

A third seethed: “How stupid are those cops?”

“As always, the Emmerdale police remain deeply incompetent. Unless they can link Marlon to that specific torch they have no case,” said one more.

Another seethed: “Really can’t believe how pathetic this is getting. How do they get forensics back so soon in a tiny village like that? And why have they not found any of Pierce’s DNA on Graham when he wasn’t wearing gloves, this plot is totally laughable.”

Others pointed out that there couldn’t possibly be CCTV in the woods, with one tweeting: “More laughable they have CCTV in the woods.”

More still called the plotline “predictable” and “boring” for arresting an innocent man of murder – not exactly an original idea in the world of soaps.
