Jury chosen in Ohio case over septic-tank slaying

Associated Press


A jury has been chosen in the trial of a man charged with aggravated murder in the death of his daughter-in-law who was strangled with a zip tie and dumped in a septic tank.

A court official said the jury selected Friday will hear opening statements Monday in 48-year-old William Inman’s trial. The trial was moved to Chillicothe after attempts to seat a jury in Hocking County were unsuccessful. Inman could face the death penalty.

Inman’s wife and son have been convicted in the March 2011 slaying of Summer Inman of Logan.

Authorities allege Summer Inman, 25, was killed because she had filed for divorce and was seeking custody of the three children she had with William Inman II.
