A woman suspected her husband had allowed his girlfriend into their home. The woman with the help of two others attacked her husband with a stun gun, bound his ankles and hands then dragged him behind a pickup truck.
Robert Hall, 54, lived in New Smyrna Beach with his ex-wife, Jeanette Morris, 61. Morris worked as a truck driver so she wasn’t home that often. The two of them had an arrangement that they date other people but that neither one of them would ever bring someone back to their home.
According to police reports, Morris believed that Hall had violated that arrangement by allowing his girlfriend into their home. Starting out doing the responsible thing, Morris asked a deputy to accompany her home so that she could avoid a confrontation with Hall.
After Morris informed the deputy that she was going to go spend the night at her brother’s home, the deputy left the house. However, Morris didn’t go to her brothers.
She and her brother, Harold Anderson, 63, along with another woman, Joan Hobart, 46, began drinking with Hall. All of a sudden, the three of them turned on Hall.
They shocked him with the stun gun three times and punched him in the face. While holding him at gunpoint, they tied his ankles and hands together.
The three of them then attached the other end of the rope they had used to bind him to the bumper of a pickup truck. The police report states that they drug Hall behind the truck for a half of a mile.
When the truck finally stopped, the trio threw Hall up into the back of the truck and cut off his hair. The entire time they were taunting him with threats of scalping him and finding a hole to bury him in.
Once the truck started up again, Hall jumped out of the back of the truck and ran to the nearest home for help.
Robert Hall remains in the surgical intensive care unit at the Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona Beach, FL. He is being treated for a broken pelvis, broken facial bones, and bleeding in his brain.
Morris, Anderson and Hobart have each been charged with attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder, false imprisonment, aggravated battery and aggravated assault.
