(AP) DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Authorities in central Florida say 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.

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

Volusia County deputies say all three were drinking with Morris' ex-husband, 54-year-old Robert Hall, in the house the estranged couple shared, 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. After being dragged, Hall managed to escape to a neighbor's house for help. He is being treated at a Daytona Beach hospital.
