Drug dealer who shot addict jailed for life

A man who murdered a drug addict over a £50 robbery and then had trial witnesses threatened has been jailed for life.

Anthony Small, 32, shot Anthony Dickson with a sub-machine-gun in Hayes, west London, on Christmas Eve 2010. Two weeks earlier Dickson, 33, stole crack cocaine from a drug runner working for Small and a fellow dealer Max Feliciano.

Yesterday at the Old Bailey Small was jailed for life for murder and told he will serve a minimum of 34 years. Feliciano was sentenced to 14 years for manslaughter, and a further three years for smuggling drugs into prison.
