Jury convicts Ohio man in septic tank body case


CHILLICOTHE, Ohio (AP) -- A man has been convicted of aggravated murder in the slaying of his daughter-in-law, who was strangled and dumped in a septic tank in southeast Ohio.

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 in the killing.

Authorities say Summer Inman was abducted in Logan, was strangled with a zip tie and was dumped in an underground septic tank behind a church in Athens County. She 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.
