Bromley Man Stabbed to Death in Hackney: A Mother’s Grief

The sentencing of two men in connection with the fatal stabbing of Trei Daley outside a nightclub in Hackney Wick has left a family shattered and a partner heartbroken. Trei Daley, a 26-year-old resident of Bromley, tragically lost his life on February 11, 2023, following a violent altercation on a night out.

Mawien Mawien, 39, from Portland Close, Chadwell Heath, received a prison sentence of five years for grievous bodily harm. He was also given an 18-month sentence to be served concurrently. Christopher Appiah-Blay, 35, residing on Wick Road, Hackney, was sentenced to 14 years in prison for manslaughter, with an additional 12-month sentence to be served concurrently. Both individuals were convicted of possessing a bladed article.

The impact of this loss on Trei Daley’s family and his partner, Danielle Trimm, has been immeasurable. During the sentencing, a heartfelt statement from Donna Saunders, Trei’s mother, was read aloud. She expressed the immense pain and sorrow that her family has endured over the past few years, including the loss of her father in 2022 and Trei in 2023. Donna recounted the moment she received the fateful phone call about her son being stabbed, describing how her world seemed to crumble under the weight of that news. Despite her anguish, Donna vowed to remain strong for her other children, who now rely on her more than ever.

Danielle Trimm, Trei’s partner of six years and the mother of their four-year-old son, also shared her profound grief. She described Trei as a loving partner and a dedicated father who took pride in their family. Danielle expressed her sadness at not being able to fulfill the plans they had for their future, including having a second child. The idea of moving on without Trei was described as overwhelming, as she cherished every moment spent with him.

The loss of Trei has had a lasting impact on Danielle, who had to take three months off work. Despite her efforts, she was replaced by her employer and could only secure part-time hours thereafter. She highlighted the exhausting nature of the trial and the daily struggle with depression and anxiety attacks since Trei’s passing. Danielle also shared her fear of living in a dangerous area without her partner’s protection, feeling vulnerable and cautious when going out.

She emphasized that knife crime was not a part of her life before Trei’s death, but it has since cast a shadow over her daily existence. Danielle now navigates life with a constant awareness of potential danger, unable to find comfort in security measures. Her journey has been marked by sadness and the anticipation of closure, even though the end of the trial remains bittersweet.

The heartbreaking testimonies from Trei Daley’s family and partner serve as a poignant reminder of the far-reaching consequences of violent acts. Their enduring pain and sorrow echo the devastating impact that such tragedies have on those left behind.
