SAMSULA, FL — A woman and her brother are in jail and facing a shitload of charges after being accused of beating the snot out of the woman’s ex-husband, then dragging him a half-mile behind a truck.
Jeanette Morris is a 61-year-old truck driver who allows her ex-husband, 54-year-old Robert Hall, to live in her home until she pays off $1,300 she owes him. The pair agreed that while Morris was out on the road, Hall would take care of her animals and would not have women in her home.
Hall did not follow the rules, and Morris became very, very upset after learning he’d had a woman at the house while she was out of town. On Tuesday, Morris showed her displeasure while drinking vodka with Hall and her brother, 63-year-old Harold Anderson.
The siblings turned violent, shocking Hall several times with a stun gun and punching him repeatedly in the face. Then, at gunpoint, Hall had red twine tied around his wrists and ankles. He was attached to the back of a Ford F-150 truck and then dragged for half a mile.
Hall made a run for it after being placed in the bed of the truck and hearing the siblings talking about digging a hole to bury him in. Hall was able to get help at a nearby home and was taken to the hospital to treat a broken pelvis, multiple facial fractures, and bleeding on the brain.
Morris and Anderson were arrested and both have been charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, attempted murder, false imprisonment, aggravated battery and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Anderson showed no remorse, telling investigators it wouldn’t have bothered him if Hall had died.
