Myles Williams, 19, from Pond Farm Estate in Hackney has been given a life sentence at the Old Bailey yesterday for stabbing his 20-year-old girlfriend to death in January.

It kicked off when Myles texted his girlfriend, Kirsty Treloar – who had just given birth to their 3-week-old baby daughter – a New Year’s Resolution which said:

Okay wer all gud now and my new yrs ressy is that I aint going to hit u again and I won’t hit u 4 this yr next yr the yr after that the next yr after that. But I wont u to swear on [their daughter’s] life u wont piss me off and do things to make me angry love you 4 eva. [sic]

Kristy texted back later at 6:30am on 2 January saying that she didn’t want to see Myles again, causing Myles to get angry and break into her home on Brownlow Road in Hackney. He then stabbed Kirsty 29 times in the chest, and also attacked her older brother and sister when they tried to shield her from Myles.

Myles then dragged Kirsty’s body into his car and drove off, dumping her body and abandoning the car next to wheelie bins two miles away.

Prosecuter Crispin Aylett QC said:

 This can only be described as a conditional New Year’s resolution. It lasted only until the following morning.

Williams, who has been given a 28-year-minimum sentenced committed the assault in front of their 3-week-old baby daughter which left the baby covered in Kirsty’s blood.

When he left the scene a bystander reported that Williams told him that Kirsty was a “white bitch” who took him “for a fool” and she “deserved to die.”
