An ex-wife drags a man behind a truck for a half mile before he escapes, and the victim winds up in the hospital with horrific injuries including a broken pelvis, bleeding on the brain and broken bones in his face.
The woman typically permitted her ex to stay at her New Smyrna Beach home in Florida while she is away on business; she works as a truck driver. When she returned to the home on Jan. 8, 2013, she had a sneaking suspicion that he had a female companion staying with him. She contacted the authorities to help her avoid a confrontation, and she told the deputy who responded to her home that she would spend the night at her brother's home, but that's not what happened. Instead, the woman and two others brutally attacked the man in a strange assault that left him with multiple injuries.
Jeanette Morris, 61, and two accomplices allegedly attacked her ex-husband with a stun gun, hog tied him, secured him to the bumper of her truck and drove down the road for a half mile before he got away. Robert Hall, 54, was admitted to Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona Beach where he is currently being treated for his massive injuries in their surgical intensive care unit, according to a Jan. 10, 2013 report by Yahoo! News.
Morris's alleged accomplices were her brother Harold Anderson, 63, and a friend, Joan Hobart, 46. The three suspects reportedly drank vodka with the victim before using a stun gun on him three times, punching him in the face and threatening him with a gun to his head. After hog tying him and securing him to the bumper of the truck, they dragged him down the road for a distance before stopping the truck and putting him in the truck bed. The man told authorities that they cut his hair and "talked about scalping him and looking for a hole to bury him." He escaped from the bed of the truck when they began to drive again.
The ex-wife who dragged the man behind her truck was charged with attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder, false imprisonment, aggravated battery and aggravated assault. Anderson and Hobart are facing the same charges as Morris.
