Two men are accused of robbing and trying to kill a 75-year-old Conway woman.

Northampton County lawmen arrested 18-year old Devin Pallone and 24-year old Justin Treakle. The Sheriff's Office says the 75-year old victim was the suspects' landlord, and they lived next door to her in Conway. She called 911 around 1:00 a.m. Thursday, October 6th saying she had been beaten. The woman told deputies she was hit, choked, blacked out, and woke up in the trunk of her car. Lawmen say gasoline had been poured around the car. Her home was ransacked and cash and other items were taken. The two suspects were arrested Thursday afternoon and their bonds are set at 400-thousand dollars cash.

The victim was treated at the hospital and is expected to be okay.
