UPDATE 3/1/13 @ 10:48 a.m.
LOGAN, Ohio (AP) - A newly unsealed confession shows a woman told authorities her son accidentally strangled his estranged wife before his parents helped hide the body in a southeast Ohio septic tank.

Sandra Inman told an investigator in 2011 she wanted to see her grandchildren more, so she and her husband and son forced her daughter-in-law, Summer, into a car in Logan to discuss the issue.

Inman said her son bound his wife's wrists with plastic zip ties and unintentionally strangled her with one around the neck.

Inman said they panicked and hid the body.

A week later, Inman told authorities where it was.

Inman pleaded guilty to murder and other charges and was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison.

Her husband and son were convicted and sentenced to life in prison.



UPDATE 2/6/13 @ 5 p.m.
CHILLICOTHE, Ohio (WSAZ) -- A jury has spared the life of a convicted murderer.

A Chillicothe Jury deliberated for about two hours Wednesday afternoon to determine the fate of William Inman.

Earlier this week, the jury convicted Inman of murdering his daughter-in-law, Summer Inman, in 2011 and stuffing her body in a septic tank.

A jury was deciding between giving Inman the death penalty for the crime, or life in prison. They recommended life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Inman's wife, Sandra, and son, William Inman II, who was married to Summer Inman, have also been convicted in the case.

Investigators say the three killed Summer Inman because she wanted a divorce from William Inman II and wanted custody of their children.



UPDATE 2/6/13 @ 1 p.m.
CHILLICOTHE, Ohio (WSAZ) -- A jury is now deciding the fate of a man they convicted of murdering his daughter-in-law earlier this week.

Monday, a jury in Chillicothe, Ohio, convicted William Inman, 48, of Logan, Ohio, of killing his daughter-in-law, Summer Inman, in 2011.

Summer was strangled to death and her body was found in a septic tank in Athens County.

Inman's wife, Sandra Inman, and their son, William Inman II were also convicted in the crime.

Wednesday, a jury heard testimony before deciding if Inman would receive the death penalty for the crime, or prison.

According to WOUB, William Inman's sister Tammy Tripp took the stand to testify on her brother's behalf, hoping to keep him from getting sentenced to death.

Tripp told the jury that their father beat them as children.

She also told the jury that her brother helped her battle her heroin addiction.

A licensed psychologist also took the stand Wednesday for the defense.

According to WOUB, Dr. James Reardon testified that Inman's childhood changed him.

Investigators say the reason that Summer Inman was killed was because she wanted a divorce from her husband, William Inman II, and wanted to take their children.

According to WOUB, Dr. Reardon told a jury that Sandra Inman had a hard time conceiving and that "Willy was a miracle which is why grandchildren were so precious to them."

In an emotional closing statement WOUB reports that William Inman's defense attorney, K. Robert Toy, said, "If you vote to kill Bill Inman, it won't lessen this tragedy to any degree. If you vote to kill Bill Inman, it won't bring Summer back."

A statement written by Inman was read to the jury Wednesday that said, "I regret my actions. I can't undo what I've done. I'm sorry for the families that have lost. I'm sorry for my family and my grand family. I'm sorry."

According to WOUB, the prosecution argued the planning involved in the murder of Summer Inman outweighed the factors surrounding Inman's childhood upbringing.

The jury can recommend life in prison for Inman, or a death sentence.

Hocking County Common Pleas Judge John Wallace said Tuesday that William Inman Sr.'s trial will be held in Chillicothe in Ross County.

Inman's wife and son already have been convicted in the murder of Summer, which prosecutors say was motivated by a child custody fight.

Inman has asked to remove the death penalty as a possible sentence if he is found guilty. Inman's attorneys told Judge Wallace that a plea deal made with Inman's wife prevents the state from pursing the death penalty.
