A Scarborough drug dealer "committed crimes that were nothing short of stark horror" when he chewed off his girlfriend's nose and tortured her for hours, a Crown attorney said yesterday.
Angel Jones is extremely likely to commit violent offences in the future, Crown attorney Paul Amenta said in Superior Court at Jones' dangerous offender hearing.
Amenta implored Justice Eugene Ewaschuk to declare Jones, 30, a dangerous offender and imprison him indefinitely.
"The victim never got a chance to live out her dream of pursuing a modelling career," Amenta said. "She was and is a beautiful woman, but she was seriously disfigured by Mr. Jones and it is a reminder of what he did to her on Feb. 17, 2002."
In 2004, a jury convicted Jones of aggravated assault, uttering death threats and sexual assault for his attack on the 24-year-old woman.
PAROLED THAT DAY
Jones had been paroled that day and his victim picked him up from jail, served him a meal and made love to him. He then viciously attacked her, believing she learned new sexual techniques and was therefore unfaithful to him.
She was rescued by Toronto Police as she was trying to "hold her face together."
Jones was described by one officer as looking "like an animal chewing on a dead carcass" when police arrived.
Jones' lengthy criminal record includes 18 convictions for violence, including assaulting his sister and stepfather.
Jones, who fired his lawyer and represented himself at the trial, repeated his account in his arguments, saying he bit off her nose accidentally. Jones said he placed his mouth over her nose while he questioned her as to whether she "betrayed" him by having another lover while Jones was serving 13 months in jail.
"Her nose just popped off as she pulled her head back," said Jones.
The judge said he will render his decision Tuesday.
