Teen who killed girlfriend in rage over text message jailed

JAILED: Myles Williams

A TEENAGER who killed his 20-year-old girlfriend and attacked her brother and sister with a knife, has been sentenced to life imprisonment.

The court heard that on January 2, Myles Williams, 19, flew into a ‘murderous rage’ after Kirsty Treloar, told him via text message that she could not meet up with him on that day.

Shortly after the receiving the text Williams, who was also convicted of GBH, repeatedly stabbed the victim in her east London home before turning his weapon on her 22-year old brother and 24-year old sister as they tried to protect her.

Police say Williams fled the scene with Kirsty’s body in a grey Fiat Stilo prior to their arrival. They later found her lying behind a set of bins near the abandoned Fiat in Ryder Mews, east London.

The injured siblings were taken to a local hospital by ambulance suffering from stab wounds, but were later discharged.

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.”
