CHINA GROVE, NC (AP) -- Investigators in Rowan County say a man held a double-barreled shotgun to a woman's head and made her read her favorite scripture. The Salisbury Post reports that the Rowan County Sheriff's Office said 20-year-old Jonathan Alan Morton was taken into custody when deputies arrived at his home shortly after midnight Sunday. Investigators said Morton held 19-year-old Elizabeth Nichols against her will inside his bedroom, pressing a shotgun to her head and, at one point, a screwdriver against her throat. A report said Morton stood behind Nichols and held the gun to her head as she read. Nichols escaped and called 911. Morton was arrested as he walked in a ditch near his home. Morton was jailed under a $35,500 bond. His attorney wasn't immediately available for comment Tuesday. (Copyright 2012 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
