A Florida woman, her brother and another accomplice allegedly shot her ex-husband with a stun gun, held him at gun point, beat him and used a pickup truck to drag him a half-mile down a dirt road, MyFoxOrlando.com reported.
The victim, Robert Hall, managed to get to a nearby home and asked for help. He told police Tuesday night that the three tried to kill him.
Hall was badly injured in the attack, the report said. He suffered a broken pelvis, broken facial bones and bleeding on his brain.
"There was an older guy with a rope around his neck and his underwear ripped from where he was drug," said Tyler Shevelan, the neighbor. "He was bleeding from the backside, face, mouth, everywhere you can think of."
Jeanette Morris, 61, and her brother, Harold Anderson, 63, face attempted murder and aggravated assault charges for a "brutal attack" on Hall, Volusia County investigators said.
A third accomplice, Joan Hobart, 46, of New Smyrna Beach, was found in Port Orange and booked on the same charges.
Hall was tossed in the bed of the truck, and when the beaten and bloody man heard talk of burying his body, he jumped from the moving truck and ran to a nearby house for help, according to investigators.
Morris denied to deputies that anything had happened. Deputies say when they questioned Anderson, his right hand was bloody and swollen, and he didn't seem remorseful. They say he told them it wouldn't have bothered him if the victim had died and that the only thing he regretted was not being there to see him dragged behind the truck.
