Killer revealed to be Ryan Knight

On the night his wife Amy Barnes was murdered, Ryan was having an affair with Kyle Kelly. This fact almost comes out when Kyle contacts Mercedes McQueen when Ryan and Mercedes begin to see each other soon after Amy's death. Ryan abuses his position as police officer to set up Kyle on a drug bust in order to throw him into prison. Ryan does this so Kyle cannot reveal Ryan's secret to anyone. While Ryan originally appears to believe that Ste Hay murdered Amy, Ryan eventually discovers that Ste's defense lawyer, James Nightingale, was only setting up Ste Hay as revenge for Ste Hay sleeping with Ste's ex husband and Jame's boyfriend at the time John Paul McQueen. After Ste is found innocent, thanks to James Nightingale's defense and accusing Gavin Armstrong of killing Amy Barnes, it is revealed that Harry fought with Amy and left her to die. However, further flashbacks reveal that although Amy was hurt she was still alive after her encounter with Harry. In reality, it is Ryan who killed Amy. He suffocated her while she accused him of being gay, which was prompted by Amy hearing him with Kyle Kelly while Ryan's phone was on that very same evening.
