A West Midlands drug dealer who sliced off a woman's ear over an unpaid debt has been jailed for a minimum of seven-and-a-half years.
Andre Singh, 30, lured Patricia Amos to Teddy Bear Woods near Banbury in Oxfordshire before telling her to kneel down and close her eyes. He then put a gun in her mouth before wrestling her to the floor and cutting off part of her ear.
The attack was in revenge for an unpaid drug debt after Miss Amos allegedly cut drugs she was selling on Singh's behalf.
Singh, of Lloyd Street, Wednesbury, was also convicted last year at Birmingham Crown Court of shooting a man who owed him money after luring him into an alley.
The drug dealer had threatened to blow up the house of Mark Usmar's parents before he shot him twice in the right leg.
On Thursday Singh was told at Leicester Crown Court that he will serve an indeterminate jail term.
Judge Howard Morrison QC said he was "an enigma" because while on remand he had saved a fellow inmate's life in a kitchen fire. The judge added: "As matters stand, you pose a significant risk to the public of causing serious injury."
Singh was earlier convicted by a jury of two counts of wounding with intent, possession of a firearm without a certificate and possession of cocaine with intent to supply.
