CHILLICOTHE, Ohio – An Ohio man has been convicted of aggravated murder in the slaying of his daughter-in-law, who was strangled and dumped in an underground sewage tank.
A jury in Chillicothe (chihl-ih-KAHTH'-ee) issued its verdict Monday for 48-year-old William Inman, who was held after the March 2011 killing of 25-year-old Summer Inman.
The trial was moved to Chillicothe after unsuccessful attempts to seat a jury in Hocking County.
Inman's wife and son were convicted last year.
Authorities say Summer Inman was abducted in Logan, 45 miles southeast of Columbus. They say she was strangled with a zip tie and dumped in a septic tank behind a church in Athens County.
Summer Inman had filed for divorce from William Inman's son and was seeking custody of the couple's three small children.
William Inman denied killing her.
