Three Charged After Man Beaten, Dragged Down Road

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (January 11, 2013)—Two women and a man have been charged in an attack in which a man was shocked with a stun gun, beaten, tied to the bumper of a truck and then dragged a half-mile down a dirt road, authorities in central Florida said.

The victim's ex-wife, Jeannette Morris, 61, her brother, Harold Anderson, 63, and another woman, Joan Hobart, 46, were charged with attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder and aggravated battery.

Volusia County deputies say the three were drinking with Morris' ex-husband, Robert Hall, 54, in the house Morris shared with her former husband when they shocked him several times and punched him.

Deputies say they then tied rope around his ankles and attached the other end to the rear bumper of a truck.

Hall managed to escape to a neighbor's house for help. He is being treated at a Daytona Beach hospital.
