Myles Williams sentenced to life for Killing Kirsty Treloar

Life in prison for 19 year old Myles Williams

Just hours after texting a New Year resolution to his girlfriend and mother of his 3 week old 2 January,  Myles Williams forced his way into her family’s home in Haggerston, stabbing  her brother and sister before dragging her out to a car.

Today he was sentenced to life at the Old Bailey and will serve a minimum of 28 years.  On 21 September, Williams 19, of Pondsford Farm Estate Clapton,  was convicted of murdering Kirsty Treloar.

Kirsty was dragged screaming into a car and driven away. At the time neighbours said they heard the sound of breaking glass and soon after her screaming “please please please” then the sound of a car screeching away.

Her body was found with stab wounds approximately 90 minutes later, between two wheelie bins near his mothers abandoned Fiat Stilo, in Ryder Mews, Homerton. Police have not been able to establish what time and where he killed her.

Earlier, he sent her a text at 11pm on New Year’s Day saying: “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.”

It ended: “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.”

Crispin Aylett QC, prosecuting, said: “This can only be described as a conditional New Year’s resolution. It lasted only until the following morning.”

Kirsty’s sister, Gemma Treloar, on behalf of all the family said:

“The last eleven months have been extremely difficult and tortuously painful. We have been ripped apart inside. We feel we would not have got through it without the love and support of each other as well as a handful of our family and friends and others, including the victim support and the police.

“We would especially like to thank the police and the prosecution team at the Old Bailey in helping to bring Kirsty’s killer to justice.

“Nothing will ever ease the pain of losing Kirsty but a little bit of justice has finally been served and we hope that Kirsty can now rest in peace and we can begin to grieve properly.

“We will forever love and miss you Kirsty.”
