LITTLE ROCK, AR (AP) - An Iowa man has been arrested on preliminary attempted murder and kidnapping charges after authorities say he tied a cinder block to his ex-girlfriend and tossed her into the Spring River in Cherokee Village.
    
Sharp County sheriff's detective Jimmy Bennett tells the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (http://bit.ly/1SYxOJ8 ) that 45-year-old Jerry Dean Clark of Glenwood, Iowa, is being held in the Sharp County jail on a $250,000 bond.
    
Court documents say Clark kidnapped 44-year-old Kathryn Lynn Jones at a Days Inn Hotel on April 20.
    
Bennett says that after Jones emerged from the river, Clark tied her to a tree and hit her. She freed herself and floated 2 miles downstream before calling for medical attention at a residence.
    
Clark will face formal charges in Sharp County Circuit Court on May 12.
