A mum who had her teeth ripped out with pliers by a brutal rapist has released a horrifying image showing the full extent of her injuries.
Remorseless sex beast Donald Jeffrey wrote to Amber weeks before his trial begging her to withdraw her accusations and “give him back his life", the Daily Record revealed .
The 48-year-old who was engaged to Jeffrey, said she endured years of violent beatings and rapes before the horrific incident with pliers.
She was one of two victims who spoke to authorities and helped jail Jeffrey for at least 10 years.
Now, Amber, from Glasgow, has told how the rapist cried for his mother after he ripped out her teeth with pliers – then made her pose in front of a mirror.
Horrific: Amber was made to pose in front of a mirror
She said: “I made two comments on two images I had seen on a Facebook page called ‘Glasgow Banter’ – one I sent to Donald and he sent back a thumbs up.
“Later we were lying on the couch when he snapped and told me to, ‘Get the f*****g pliers.’ I handed him the pliers as I was too scared of what he would do if I didn’t and I begged him not to do it.
“I knew if it wasn’t my teeth, it could be my fingernails or toenails.
“He didn’t need to tell me what to do, I opened my mouth and he clamped the pliers on to each front tooth and yanked them out. I couldn’t feel any pain, I was numb. I could hear my teeth falling onto the wooden floor.
“Then he took me to the bathroom mirror and laughed at me. He told me to ‘show him a smile’.
“Donald then got a claw hammer and hit me on the head, legs and knees. There was blood on the ceiling and walls and I later found out I suffered a slight brain haemorrhage.
“Then he told me to get in a cold bath and put my head under the water four times.”
While pushing her head under water for the third time he jumped on top of her to keep her submerged.
Amber said: “At that point I thought, ‘I’m going to die.’”
Twisted Jeffrey refused Amber medical treatment for 24 hours and instead sent her to a chemist.
She said: “After it was over he was crying for his mum and kept saying he knew he had f***ed things between us.
“I tried to reassure him he hadn’t and said a dentist could fix my teeth.
“Then I asked to go to hospital, but instead his friend picked me up and dropped me off on Sauchiehall Street where I went to Boots the Chemist.
“I told them I’d been in an accident as I didn’t want to get Donald in trouble. It wasn’t until the next day a friend came round and took me to the hospital.”
During a horrifying campaign of violence, Jeffrey raped and beat the mum before threatening to throw her out a 17th-floor window in March 2013.
In another attack, in October 2013, the sex beast dropped dumbbells on to her.

Amber said: “I left him and went to stay with a friend, but I found out he was listening into our conversations in the flat through the neighbour’s walls and was even up in the loft.
“He finally asked to come and see me to try and have some kind of closure so I allowed him in since he knew where I was anyway.
“A few days later he grabbed me and I was clinging to the door frames as he opened the window of the 17th-floor flat and threatened to throw me out.
“Another time he came in and asked if I’d rather a ‘doing’ or a headlock? I picked headlock and fell unconscious. When I woke he had ripped up black bin bags.
“He told me to lie on them and said I had to keep my hands in my pockets. Then he dropped dumbbells on to me.”
Amber and Jeffrey had been friends for more than 23 years before the pair became a couple in 2008.
They got engaged in December 2009 but within months Jeffrey began to show his controlling and abusive side.
Amber said: “When we got together, we were inseparable. Donald was supportive and kind, but he soon changed. In 2011, when I was
seriously ill, he was my carer and was meant to look after me, but it didn’t stop him and instead I’d be turning up at hospital for treatment with bruises.
“After attacking me he would cry and say sorry. He’d say only I could make him that angry and it was because he loved me so much.”
Last year, Amber was forced to contact police over concerns Jeffrey had a gun and was
threatening to harm himself.
Then she broke her silence and told officers of his violent and abusive side.
But weeks before his trial was due to begin, Amber claims, Jeffrey wrote to her begging her to withdraw her
statement and “give him back his life.”
Amber said: “He told me that he ‘loves the bones of me’ and wanted me to ‘give him back his life.’”
In one of the most appalling cases of domestic abuse ever heard in
Scotland, a jury heard details of the abuse suffered by Amber and another victim Jacqueline a during a harrowing trial at the High Court in Glasgow.
Yesterday The Record revealed the plight of Jeffrey’s former partner Jacqueline, 45, also from Glasgow – who was repeatedly raped, battered and beaten up.
