****Spoiler Alert!!!****

Soap newcomer Justine Cotsonas will be moving on from Oakdale in just a few weeks. Soaps.com has learned that Justine’s character, Sofie, will be murdered later this week, but we will continue to see Sofie on-screen through August.

Justine’s Sofie first arrived in Oakdale last fall; she immediately hit it off with Aaron Snyder. While working with him at The Lakeview Lounge, Aaron became a shoulder for Sofie to cry on when boyfriend Cole ignored her or put her down. It quickly became clear that Sofie was in a bad relationship and needed to cut ties but she was too emotionally attached to Cole to cut those apron strings. When she learned she was pregnant and he didn’t want the baby, it only made things worse.
