INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Two men are in custody for the abduction and attempted murder of an Indianapolis woman.

The unidentified victim was found in a ditch along the side of I-70 in Henry County June 13. She was taken to an Indianapolis hospital for treatment, and her injuries were so severe she is still in the recovery process.

A State Police investigator determined the woman dropped her children off at a daycare in Indianapolis the morning of June 12, but never returned that afternoon to pick the kids back up.

Troopers say Christopher Williams and Jonathan O'Connor abducted her in Indianapolis, drove her to Henry County, severely beat her and dumped her near the 8400 block of Grant City Rd. in Knightstown. Both men are charged with criminal confinement. Williams is also charged with attempted murder and battery resulting in serious bodily injury.
