A man from Chadwell Heath has appeared in court to deny murdering a man near a Hackney nightclub. 

Trei Daley, a 26-year-old from Bromley, died in hospital after being stabbed on February 11 near to the Colour Factory club off White Post Lane in Hackney Wick. 

Mawien Mawien, of Portland Close in Chadwell Heath, appeared in Court 11 of the Old Bailey on Thursday (May 25). 

The 39-year-old pleaded not guilty to murdering Trei, as well as wounding another man with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and carrying a bladed article in Queen’s Yard, Hackney Wick. 

Christopher Appiah-Blay, 35, of Wick Road in Hackney, is also charged with murdering Trei. 

Appiah-Blay will be asked to plea at a later date due to a delay in prison transport to the Old Bailey. 

The trial is set to take place in January 2024.
