Young and the Restless spoilers from Lauralee Bell (who plays DA Christine Williams) reveal that the JT Hellstrom (Thad Luckinbill) murder trial stays front and center in Genoa City for weeks. Y&R fans can expect a slow drag for this already long-running plot according to the actress.
Young and the Restless: Lauralee Bell Center Stage As Christine Williams
Y&R viewers won’t be surprised that Christine prosecuting the JT Hellstrom homocide trial drags on. The storyline has been going for nearly a year. JT Helkstrom last appeared alive in April 2018. Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) is on trial for murder and Christine will work hard to get a conviction. She will also need to persuade the jury that Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) and Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) helped dispose of JT’s body.
With Phyllis Abbott (Gina Tognoni) as the star witness for the state and the video footage of the women loading JT’s body into the car, Christine’s job should be easy. However, this storyline on Young and the Restless has been full of twist and turns. From Tessa Porter’s (Caitlin Fairbanks) blackmail scheme to Nick Newman’s (Joshua Morrow) JT mask, viewers have never known what to expect.

There is no doubt more unexpected turns will arise during this trial of the century. Thad Luckinbill is back on the Y&R set filming new scenes according to Young and the Restless spoilers. It is unknown if he will appear in flashbacks or new scenes if he’s revealed to be alive. Christine Williams is back too after long stretches with few appearances.
Additionally, some fans speculated that perhaps Thad will appear as a previously unknown twin since he is a twin in life. Traci Abbott (Beth Maitland) and Paul Williams (Doug Davidson) will also return to the CBS soap and could have a part in the action. Paul has tried to bringing down the Newman family for years. His return could show he learned something that will help Christine Williams get a conviction.
