The mother of Wormwood Scrubs widow, Salma Hassan, has described her 20-year-old daughter's heartbreak a week after her husband was killed while on remand in prison.

Father-of-one, Khader Saleh, was found with multiple stab wounds in his Wormwood Scrubs prison cell on the evening of January 31.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Following his death, his young wife Salma Hassan, who recently moved to Stonebridge, Brent, has been left to bring up their two-year-old son, Ahmed, alone.

Speaking to getwestlondon, Salma's mum, Nadiya Muhammed, spoke of her daughter's utter heartbreak.

Mrs Muhammed, 46, said: "She's in a very bad way, she won't stop crying and can't eat.
