Both incidents were witnessed by the couple's 2-year-old son, according to the affidavit.

Liggins is then accused of throwing an Xbox and box fan, striking Horton in the head with both items. Liggins and Rogers would not let Horton leave and blocked the doorway, but she managed to escape the house twice. Both times, Rogers grabbed her and dragged her back inside the house, according to the affidavit.

At some point during the alleged attack, Rogers used his cellphone to make a short video in which he “taunts and makes fun of the victim and the situation,” according to the affidavit.

After Liggins and Rogers left the house, Horton passed out on the bed for an unknown amount of time, waking to Liggins screaming in her face and again dragging her from the bed and to the floor, court papers show.

Horton begged the men to take her to a hospital, but they refused. However, at this point, Rogers stepped in between Liggins and Horton and she was able to run to a neighbor's house, according to court records. Liggins reportedly stopped chasing her when a neighbor came out to help.

A doctor who examined the victim said she suffered from a shoulder separation, bruising on the back of her head and multiple scrapes about her neck and back, according to the affidavit.

Liggins and Rogers are free on bail and were not in the jail on Friday, jail officials said.
