Man recovering in hospital after beating, dragging

A Volusia County man is in fair condition after he was beaten and dragged behind his ex-wife’s truck, according to investigators.

Three people are accused in the attempted-homicide of Robert Hall. Doctors do expect him to survive.

Officials said 46-year-old Joan Hobart of New Smyrna Beach was arrested Wednesday. Hall’s 61-year-old ex-wife, Jeanette Morris, and her brother, 63-year-old Harold Anderson, were arrested first.

Investigators said Morris still lives with Hall and learned he had another woman over while she was away.

Morris, Anderson and Hall were all drinking together when a fight began.

Deputies said Morris and Anderson beat up Hall, waved a gun around and used a stun gun on him. He was then tied up by Hobart and Morris and dragged from the back of a truck for about a half mile, according to authorities.

Hall told authorities that at one point they stopped the truck and were overheard saying that they were going to drive and find a hole to bury him in — via
