Judge: Sandra Inman sane at time of daughter-in-law's murder

By Mary Beth Lane

The Columbus Dispatch Friday February 24, 2012 1:51 PM

A judge ruled yesterday that Sandra Inman was sane at the time of her daughter-in-law's death.

A southeastern Ohio woman charged with murder in her daughter-in-law’s strangulation was sane at the time of the death, a judge ruled yesterday.

Hocking County Common Pleas Judge John T. Wallace said he will now schedule a trial date for Sandra K. “Sandy” Inman, without delay.

Inman, 46, had pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity in the March 22 kidnapping and murder of Summer Inman, 25, from outside the bank in downtown Logan where she was working as a janitor.

Her body was found a week later in a church septic tank near Nelsonville in Athens County. She had been strangled with a plastic zip tie.

The judge ruled in November that Inman was competent to stand trial after two psychologists evaluated her and found her competent.

Wallace cited the competency conclusions yesterday, plus his own courtroom conversations with and observations of Inman in ruling that she was sane at the time of Summer Inman’s death.

The husband and father-in-law of Summer Inman, William A. “Will” Inman II, 26, and William A. “Bill” Inman, 47, have been indicted on aggravated-murder charges and could face the death penalty. Sandra Inman could face 15 years to life if convicted.

Will and Summer Inman were divorcing and arguing about child custody after she left him last year. Her parents have custody of the three children.

Normal Slain woman’s friends seek ‘justice for Summer’

Post by raine1953 on Sun Mar 18, 2012 2:22 pm

LOGAN, Ohio — A good many cars and pickup trucks in this southeastern Ohio community bear a bumper ribbon that reads, Justice for Summer.

No one here has forgotten Summer Dawn (Cook) Inman, especially now as the anniversary of her strangulation approaches.

“I’ll go in places and people will ask me, ‘How are Summer’s parents doing, her kids?’ I know it’s on people’s minds in this area,” said her pastor, the Rev. Michael L. Martin, whose own pickup displays one of the ribbons.

The 25-year-old mother of three was abducted on March 22 outside the downtown Logan bank that she was cleaning after hours, forced by two men into a car driven by a woman and strangled. Her body was found a week later in an underground septic tank behind a church on Rt. 33 near Nelsonville in Athens County.

Now, the community awaits the murder trials of her husband and in-laws before Hocking County Common Pleas Judge John T. Wallace.

A candlelight vigil to remember Summer is planned for 7 p.m. Thursday at Worthington Park, across from the courthouse downtown.

Summer’s mother-in-law, Sandra K. “Sandy” Inman, 47, who told authorities where to find the body, is scheduled for trial on April 2. She faces 15 years to life in prison if convicted of murder.

Summer’s husband, William A. “Will” Inman II, 27, is scheduled for trial in May; her father-in-law, William A. “Bill” Inman, 48, in August. They are each charged with aggravated murder and face the death penalty if convicted. They, like Sandy Inman, are being held in the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail in Nelsonville..

Martin, the pastor of First Church Praise and Worship Center, married Summer and Will there in 2004. She grew up attending the Pentecostal church in Logan with her parents, Michael and Debra Cook.

The young couple lived with his family. The elder Inman, who was the strong family patriarch, moved the clan to Florida until he lost their new home there to foreclosure. The family returned to southeastern Ohio in 2008, renting a house in Hamden in Vinton County from a builder for whom Bill Inman did finishing work.

Summer and Will’s marriage was fracturing, though. She filed for divorce in June 2010, took the children and moved back in with her parents in Logan.

The elder Inmans, who had doted on their grandchildren, lost weight and looked haggard, the builder recalled.

Summer, meanwhile, entered counseling and took parenting classes. She planned to enroll in Hocking College’s culinary arts program and open her own restaurant some day.

She returned to the church she had grown up in, and brought the children. She attended the Sunday service on March 20.

Martin chatted with her afterward and recalled that she seemed happy.

She was abducted two days later.

In Nelsonville, a different pastor received a phone call on March 29. The Rev. King Kelly listened as his brother, Athens County Sheriff Patrick Kelly, told him that authorities had been told by Sandy Inman that Summer’s body was in the septic tank behind his Faith Tabernacle Church.

Bill Inman had helped build the church, transforming a roadhouse called the Scenic Inn when Kelly bought the building in 1978 into a house of God.

The pastor married Bill and Sandy at the church in 1983, and Bill played guitar and piano at Sunday services. They were nice, generous people, Kelly said in a recent interview.

“If it had not been for Sandy saying where the body was, you would never have convinced me that they did anything like that,” he said. “You could not ask for a nicer family.”

Much as he liked Bill, though, Kelly said he had noticed a change in recent years. “He got it in his head that he was called to preach.”

Inman obtained a minister’s license in 2010 and listed himself as leader of Mercy Tabernacle Church. He created Mercy Ranch, a nonprofit organization, “to help people who has lost their jobs or been cut back on hours keep their homes,” he wrote in an incorporation document filed with the Ohio secretary of state’s office.

As 2010 ended, Summer and Will were in court fighting over child custody and support. He and his parents were evicted from the Hamden house for failing to make payments.

Summer returned for some belongings. She brought a deputy sheriff and the boyfriend that she had begun dating around the time she left Will. Her father-in-law threatened to shoot and beat the boyfriend, and then wrestled with the deputy. Bill Inman was convicted of misdemeanors including resisting arrest, and he received probation.

Summer’s parents, the Cooks, have custody of Alex, 6, Kaley, 4, and Alanna, nearly 3, and bring them to church every Sunday.

Debbie, 50, a law firm office manager, teaches Sunday school. Mike, 66, a retired computer-science and business instructor at Hocking College, ushers. The church members are their second family, and their faith has helped them endure their loss.

Pictures of their mother hang on the children’s bedroom walls, and Alex and Kaley attend weekly counseling, their grandmother wrote in an email response to The Dispatch.

“Alex doesn’t like to talk about his mommy not being there anymore. Kaley says, ‘I miss my mommy’ every night.

“She also says, ‘I want to climb up to heaven and find mommy and bring her home.’

“Alanna probably doesn’t remember her mommy by now, but she repeats whatever Kaley says. They are all so cute and sweet. It is heartbreaking to watch them go through this.”

Normal Inman trial witnesses describe screams, stun gun

Inman trial witnesses describe screams, stun gun
Husband accused of abducting and murdering wife

By Mary Beth Lane
The Columbus Dispatch Tuesday June 5, 2012 5:40 PM


William A. Inman II at the Hocking County Courthouse in Logan this morning.

LOGAN, Ohio — Summer D. Cook and William A. “Will” Inman II started dating as teenagers after they met at a social function at the Faith Tabernacle Church near Nelsonville.

Her strangled body was discarded outside the same church last year, thrust head first into an underground septic tank behind the small, steepled house of worship that Will’s father had helped build.

The couple married when Summer was 18 and had three children. But the marriage failed. By the time she left him and returned with the children to live with her parents, she was afraid of him, her mother told a jury today.

Debbie Cook testified in the second day of the aggravated-murder trial of Will Inman, 27. He faces the death penalty if a jury convicts him of abducting and strangling 25-year-old Summer with a plastic zip tie last year. She was snatched from outside a bank in downtown Logan that she was cleaning after hours on March 22, 2011. Her body was found seven days later after her mother-in-law told authorities the location.

Summer Inman’s father-in-law, William A. “Bill” Inman, 48, also faces the death penalty if convicted of aggravated murder. Her mother-in-law, Sandra K. Inman, 47, faces 15 years to life in prison if convicted of murder. Their trials are scheduled for July and August.

Debbie Cook told the jurors in the Hocking County Common Pleas Court trial that her daughter was relieved to have left her husband and filed for divorce in June 2010, but also frightened. She attended counseling two times a week for victims of domestic violence.

“She had been in fear of her life for awhile,” her mother said.

That is why her daughter developed a system for when she worked nights cleaning bank buildings. She would phone or text her mother or her boyfriend, Adam Peters, when she got to work and when she was leaving work, both of them testified.


So it was that her mother and her boyfriend, who was at the Cook home that night, were worried when it became 11:30 p.m. on March 22 and they had not heard from Summer. She was late.

Earlier today, eyewitnesses testified about what they saw that night.

Friends Kylee Helman and Emily Hedges were out walking when they heard screaming and the sound of a stun gun. The sounds came from an alley next to Century National Bank.

“Tzzt, tzzt, tzzt,” Helman said, describing the stun-gun sound that she heard. The screams were “horrible, like somebody dying,” she said.

Peering into an alley off Hunter Street, the women saw a white car that looked like an old police cruiser, with the back door open and a blonde woman behind the wheel urging two men, “C’mon, c’mon, get in, get in,’” Helman testified.

Hedges recalled seeing two men in dark clothing standing, and a woman on the ground in a ball, her knees drawn up. She could hear, but not see, a stun gun. She knew the sound because her aunt owns one, she said.

The two men threw the woman on the ground into the back seat of the car, and the car took off, Hedges said.

Around the same time, Lynda Sue Harris was driving along Hunter Street en route to Wal-Mart, her window open because she smokes in the car. She heard screaming and yelling, and she glanced at her dashboard clock. It read 11:11 p.m., she said.

She passed the alley intersection and saw a woman being shoved into what looked like a white Crown Victoria.

Meanwhile, Richard “Joey” Leake was walking in the area and heard screaming. It was a female voice. “She was screaming bloody murder,” he told jurors.

He walked toward the sound and into an alley where he saw a white vehicle. A woman lay on the ground and he saw the electrical light from the stun gun that was being pressed against her, he said. Two men stood over her. “They didn’t let up,” he said.

Leake neared the men when a woman hollered, “There’s someone behind you!” The next thing Leake knew, he had been sprayed with something in his eyes that blurred his vision. He stumbled from the scene and went to find police. All he could think was that he needed to get help.

Rachel Sams was sitting with her fiancé in his truck outside North Fitness Center on Main Street when a young man — Leake — came along. He was walking funny and yelling and had his hands to his face, she told jurors.

“He said someone was being kidnapped around the corner and someone pepper-sprayed him. He said he needed to help her. He said he needed to get to the police station,” Sams said.

Sams called 911 and gave her water bottle to Leake so he could flush his eyes.

Testimony continues on Wednesday.

Normal Prosecution: Inman strangled estranged wife

Prosecution: Inman strangled estranged wife

By Mary Beth Lane
The Columbus Dispatch Monday June 4, 2012 5:24 PM


William A. Inman II

LOGAN, Ohio — William A. “Will” Inman II was face to face with his estranged wife when he strangled her with a zip tie cinched so tightly that it cut into her neck, the Hocking County prosecutor told jurors today in opening statements in his murder trial.

“William A. Inman II pulled that tie and he watched her face as she struggled and died,” Prosecutor Laina Fetherolf told the jury.

Then, Fetherolf said, he imposed the final indignity by dumping her body into an underground septic tank on the grounds of a church, her purse still on her arm.

Inman’s defense lawyers deferred making an opening statement until “a later time,” they told Common Pleas Judge John T. Wallace.

Inman, 27, faces the death penalty if convicted of aggravated murder in the strangulation of 25-year-old Summer D. (Cook) Inman last year. She had fled the marriage and taken their three children with her, and a divorce was under way.

Summer Inman was abducted on March 22, 2011 from outside the downtown Logan bank she was cleaning after hours. Her body was found on March 29, head first inside the septic tank of Faith Tabernacle Church near Nelsonville.

Her mother-in-law, Sandra K. Inman, 47, told authorities where to find her body. She is charged with murder and faces 15 years to life in prison if convicted.

Her father-in-law, William A. “Bill” Inman, 48, also is charged with aggravated murder and faces the death penalty if convicted.

Will Inman’s trial is the first. His mother’s trial is scheduled for July and his father’s for August.

He sat quietly with his attorneys, assistant state public defenders Herman Carson and Jerry McHenry, as the prosecutor told the jury that the evidence will show that he and his parents planned the abduction and murder of his estranged wife because he was so enraged that she had left him.

The jury might wonder, Fetherolf said, did he do it or was he “along for the ride?”

He did it, she said. “Who would be angrier than him?” she said. Summer had left him, had taken their children with her. He had threatened to kill her if she left, the prosecutor said.

“Listen to our witnesses,” she told the jury. “You will vote to convict him of all counts.”

Normal Witnesses place car outside church after woman's disappearance

Witnesses place car outside church after woman's disappearance

By Mary Beth Lane
The Columbus Dispatch Wednesday June 6, 2012 5:14 PM



LOGAN, Ohio — Three people identified by prosecutors as William A. “Will” Inman II and his parents worked for nearly an hour vacuuming and wiping down the interior of a white Crown Victoria at a suburban Cleveland car wash the morning after Will Inman’s estranged wife was abducted.

The scenes captured by a surveillance camera at the Blue Sonic car wash in Seven Hills, time-stamped from when the car pulls in at 7:32 a.m. until it pulls out at 8:22 a.m. on March 23, 2011, show the cleaners busy the entire time.

Another surveillance tape from earlier that morning shows the car pulling into a car wash in McConnelsville in Morgan County, about an hour’s drive northeast from Logan.

Jurors in Inman’s murder trial today watched the tapes attentively.


Inman, 27, faces the death penalty if convicted of aggravated murder in the abduction and strangulation of his estranged wife, 25-year-old Summer D. Inman. His father, William A. “Bill” Inman, 48, also faces the death penalty if convicted of aggravated murder. His mother, Sandra K. Inman, 47, faces 15 years to life in prison if convicted of murder.

Summer Inman was abducted from outside the downtown Logan bank that she was cleaning after hours on March 22. Her body was found inside am underground septic tank outside the Faith Tabernacle Church near Nelsonville after her mother-in-law divulged the location to authorities.

Testimony today in Hocking County Common Pleas Court established that the elder Inman paid $1,000 at a northeastern Ohio car dealership to buy a 2003 white, four-door Crown Victoria sedan. It once belonged to Streetsboro police, and still bore its distinctive police spotlight mounted on the driver side.

Records show that he bought the car on March 18, four days before Summer Inman was abducted.

Witnesses who saw and heard a screaming woman in an alley on the night of March 22 told jurors that the struggle took place alongside a white car that resembled an old police cruiser. They noted the police spot light. Witnesses who testified this morning told jurors that they saw a white car that looked like a police car parked outside the Faith Tabernacle Church.

Logan Police Chief Aaron Miller told jurors today that he was treating the disappearance of Summer D. Inman as a kidnapping when he talked to Will Inman the next morning.

Had he seen Summer? Miller asked Inman over the phone on March 23. No, Inman replied, and no, he didn’t know where she was.

“He said, ‘I don’t know. Could she be running around with a friend?’ “Miller testified this morning.

Inman told the chief that he and his parents were in Parma, a Cleveland suburb. Their car had broken down in the area the day before, and they had spent the night there, Inman said.


That account did not conform to the cell phone trail as tracked by Robert Moledor, a Columbus police officer and cell-phone analysis expert who aided Logan police in the investigation.

The cell phone used by Will Inman traveled from the Akron area to Logan on March 22, and then was back up in the Akron area by 3:39 a.m. on March 23, Moledor testified this morning.

Eyewitnesses testified this morning that they saw a white car that resembled a police cruiser parked outside the Faith Tabernacle Church as they drove by.

Colten Kilkenny testified that he spotted it as he drove home from his Subway manager job in Nelsonville to Logan, about 11:30 p.m. on March 22.

Chrystal Farris said she drove by about 12:15 a.m. or 12:30 a.m. on March 23 and saw a white car with two men standing at its two open rear doors and a blonde behind the wheel. “It appeared so odd. It didn’t have headlights on,” she told jurors.

Testimony continues on Thursday.

Testimony continues in in Ohio septic tank case


Posted: Jun 07, 2012 3:07 AM EDT Updated: Jun 07, 2012 3:07 AM EDT

LOGAN, Ohio (AP) - Testimony was expected to continue Thursday in the southeast Ohio trial of a man accused of killing his estranged wife.

Twenty-7-year-old William Inman II and his parents have pleaded not guilty in the death of 25-year-old Summer Inman.

Authorities say she was abducted, strangled and dumped in an underground septic tank behind a church in nearby Athens County.

Inman and his parents are being tried separately, with Inman's trial the first of the three.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/LBw5oV ) that jurors on Wednesday watched surveillance video of 3 people identified by prosecutors as Inman and his parents vacuuming and wiping down the interior of a white Crown Victoria at a suburban Cleveland car wash the morning after Summer Inman was abducted.

Witness: I Saw Younger Inman In Car At Bank

By: NBC4 | NBC4
Published: June 06, 2012
Updated: June 06, 2012 - 5:53 PM

LOGAN, Ohio -- The county prosecutor is calling on more witnesses to make her case against a southeast Ohio man charged in the slaying of his estranged wife.

The trial for 27-year-old William Inman Jr. continued Wednesday in Hocking County common pleas court in Logan, about 45 miles southeast of Columbus.

The younger Inman; his father, William A. Inman Sr.; and his mother, Sandra K. Inman, all are accused in connection with the March 2011 kidnapping and murder of 25-year-old Summer Inman.

Authorities have said Summer was abducted outside a Logan bank, forced into a car, strangled and dumped in an underground septic tank behind a church in nearby Athens County.

Hocking County Prosecutor Laina Fetherolf and her team are working to connect the younger Inman to both Summer's kidnapping and the spot where her body was recovered.

NBC4's Steve Wainfor was at the courthouse Wednesday, reporting back with witness testimony.

Witness Tony Matheny described seeing a car that looked like a police cruiser driving around downtown Logan. He told jurors he saw the white Ford Crown Victoria allegedly used to kidnap Summer, and the younger Inman was inside the car.

Matheny also said he witnessed the younger Inman arguing with Summer on another, prior, day. He said that was how he could identify the younger Inman, in addition to the media's images and videos.

A second witness, Chrystal Farris, testified she saw the Crown Victoria at the Faith Tabernacle Church outside of Nelsonville at about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 22, the same day Summer disappeared.

Summer's body was found at that same church.

Logan Police Chief Aaron Miller told the jury he talked to the younger Inman by phone the day after Summer disappeared and asked if he had been in town the night of her disappearance.

"His response was, 'No, they have not,' " Miller said.

Miller testified the younger Inman said his car had broken down in Cleveland that night.

The prosecution then said investigators tracked Inman's cell phone and used several surveillance cameras to show that the younger Inman was in the Logan area in the car they were searching for.

In an attempt to show the Inmans owned the vehicle in question, prosecutors showed video that appears to be the trio cleaning out a Crown Victoria at the Blue Sonic Car Wash.

The elder Inman was allegedly seen removing a spotlight from the vehicle, similar to the one witnesses testified seeing on the car in the alley.

Prosecutors also attempted to prove the vehicle's ownership through records obtained from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

Prosecutors said they plan to finish with witness testimony on Friday.

The younger Inman and his parents are being tried separately. His trial is the first of the three.

Father and son each are charged with two counts of aggravated murder, murder, tampering with evidence, kidnapping and abuse of a corpse. They have both pleaded not guilty. They both may face the death penalty, if convicted.

Sandra is charged with murder, kidnapping, tampering with evidence and gross abuse of a corpse. If convicted, she faces 15 years to life in prison.

Sandra's trial starts Monday, July 9. The elder Inman's trial begins Friday, Aug. 24

LOGAN, Ohio — A state crime investigator peered into a septic tank on March 29 last year after authorities were told that the body of Summer D. Inman was there.

“I was able to see a socked foot in the water,” Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation agent Joshua Durst told jurors this afternoon.

The body of the 25-year-old mother of three was thrust head first down the septic tank outside Faith Tabernacle Church near Nelsonville. Durst and others pulled her out by the legs. Her wrists were bound with three zip ties, and another zip tie was cinched around her neck, Durst testified.

Jurors were shown photos of her body, her woven-fabric purse still slung on her left arm, and of the septic tank and the church grounds.

The testimony came on the fourth day of the trial of William A. “Will” Inman II in Hocking County Common Pleas Court. Inman, 27, faces the death penalty if convicted of aggravated murder in the abduction and strangulation of his estranged wife on March 22, 2011.

His father, William A. Inman, 48, also faces the death penalty if convicted of aggravated murder. His mother, Sandra K. Inman, 47, faces 15 years to life in prison if convicted of murder.

Durst put on gloves and opened sealed bags to show jurors the items that he and other investigators collected that night, after Summer Inman’s mother-in-law had divulged the location of her body.

He showed her purse. It contained her wallet with a driver’s license that displayed her smiling photograph. There also was a purple date book. She was wearing jeans and a tee-shirt.

In the days between Summer Inman’s abduction from outside the downtown Logan bank that she was cleaning after hours on March 22, 2011, and the discovery of her body seven days later, authorities tracked the whereabouts of her estranged husband and in-laws, jurors were told today.

The white Ford Crown Victoria into which prosecutors say Summer Inman was forced during her abduction was an old police cruiser, so it had no door handles in the back seat.

There was no way to escape.

The car stopped by Pearl Road Auto Wrecking in Cleveland on March 23. The business sells used auto parts. A man aged 45 to 50 emerged from the car, and said he wanted to buy four tires. “He said he wanted to spruce up his car a little bit,” salesman Richard Lenz testified today.

And, the man asked, would the store give him a break on the purchase by letting him trade in his four existing tires on the Crown Victoria? Lenz told jurors he agreed, but was puzzled. The Crown Vic’s tires “were brand new” and “way better” than the four tires that the man was buying from his store, Lenz said.

The man, who prosecutors say was the elder Inman, bought the store’s tires for about $200, with about a $50 break for trading in his existing tires, which were so nice that “we actually sold them that night” to a customer, Lenz said.

The salesman thought nothing more of it until an FBI agent stopped by the store with a photograph making inquiries, “I opened my big mouth; I watch Law and Order,” Lenz told jurors. “ Yeah,” he recalled telling the FBI agent, “we sold that guy some tires.”

Prosecutors have said that the Inmans deliberately changed the car’s appearance to cover up evidence including tire treads.

By late in the day on March 23, the car was taken as evidence from the Akron house where Will Inman and his parents were staying.

The house, which contained a framed portrait of Will and Summer Inman’s three children in the living room, yielded other evidence collected by authorities.

Inside a backpack, authorities found a security badge, a couple of walkie-talkies and the sort of flashlight that police use, equipped with a green laser sight and a notched, beveled edge that can be used as a weapon if needed, Akron police detectives told jurors today.

The Inman family was staying at a house at 1951 Fay Rd. in Akron so that the elder Inman could remodel it.

Akron police detectives and FBI agents descended on the house on March 23, after Summer was snatched late the night before. Logan police had reached out for help from the Akron police to locate the Inman family.

The missing woman could be inside the house, the detectives thought. They didn’t know what they were dealing with at the time, said Akron Sgt. Terrence Hudnall, who has since retired.

Hudnall got a judge to sign a search warrant and then his detectives and FBI agents went inside. There they found Will Inman and his parents. They started collecting items.

Besides the items in the back pack, they found a Garmin GPS unit, three cell phones and two black hoodies, one with a star pattern, Akron police Det. Frank Harrah told jurors.

Among four vehicles parked outside by the Inmans was the white Crown Victoria. As authorities searched the house into the night, Mark Kollar, an Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation agent assigned to the area, got a call from the BCI headquarters radio room in Madison County. He was told to start processing the vehicles.

Records that jurors saw yesterday show that the elder Inman had bought the former Streetsboro city police cruiser for $1,000 from a car dealership on March 18, four days before Summer was abducted.

Jurors yesterday also were shown a car-wash surveillance tape that showed three people, identified by prosecutors as Will Inman and his parents, with the younger man wearing a hoodie with a star pattern. They were cleaning and vacuuming the interior of the car for nearly an hour the morning of March 23.

By then, prosecutors have said, Summer had been strangled and left in a septic tank behind a church near Nelsonville.

When Kollar began to comb through the car on March 24, he noticed that the interior was immaculate. He could not lift a single fingerprint from the inside because it was so clean, he told jurors today.

“Which struck me as odd,” he said.

Inside the car he found a knife, a mace canister and a container of Fast Orange, a strong cleaner, he said.

Testimony continues on Friday.

The father went and traded in four brand new tires for 4 used tires to spruce up his car. The used tires were better than the used ones he bought. He sure was trying to throw off the LE by changing the pattern of the tires on his car. He still got caught. Thank goodness for the witnesses and the surveillance cameras.

Normal Detectives, Agent Take The Stand In Younger Inman's Trial

Detectives, Agent Take The Stand In Younger Inman's Trial

By: NBC4 | NBC4
Published: June 07, 2012
Updated: June 07, 2012 - 5:10 PM

LOGAN, Ohio -- The county prosecutor brings in detectives and a special agent to make her case against a southeast Ohio man charged in the slaying of his estranged wife.

The trial for 27-year-old William Inman Jr. continued Thursday in Hocking County common pleas court in Logan, about 45 miles southeast of Columbus.

The younger Inman; his father, William A. Inman Sr.; and his mother, Sandra K. Inman, all are accused in connection with the March 2011 kidnapping and murder of 25-year-old Summer Inman.

Authorities have said Summer was abducted outside a Logan bank, forced into a car, strangled and dumped in an underground septic tank behind a church in nearby Athens County.

Hocking County Prosecutor Laina Fetherolf and her team have called two detectives from the Akron police department to testify on the search conducted at the Inmans' Akron home.

Special Agent Mark Kollar from Ohio's Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) also took the stand, talking about evidence collection at the home.

NBC4's Steve Wainfor was at the courthouse Thursday, reporting back with testimony.

The detectives told the jury they seized a fake police badge, a tactical flashlight, a GPS, walkie-talkies and three cellphones during the search. They said the badge, flashlight and walkie-talkies were found in a backpack that was in a closet.

BCI did a 12-hour fingerprint analysis on what is presumed to be the Inmans' white Ford Crown Victoria.

What wasn't found was what piqued agents' interest.

"Normal people would have more contact with the interior of the vehicle than they would the exterior of the vehicle, operating from the inside. Generally, we would find fingerprints on the inside, but in this case, again, there were none. Led me to believe the interior had been cleaned," Kollar said on the stand.

It was also an emotional day for family members in the court room as prosecutors showed photos of Summer's body the night she was found in the septic tank.

"They had received information that her … body might be in that tank. Previous, obviously, to my arrival, he had removed the tank lid and saw a foot, we believed to be a socked foot protruding from the top of the water level," said Josh Hurst, BCI crime scene investigator.

Hurst told the jury that when he arrived at the Faith Tabernacle Church, he started to process the scene, which included the task of identifying the body police had found.

"The information that I had been told … was what the shirt read that was being worn by Summer Inman when she was last seen. To me that was something relative because at this point, we are trying to confirm if this is her or not," Hurst said.

Hurst said they confirmed it was Summer's body by finding her driver's license.

He described how zip ties were used to bind Summer's hands together and that one zip tie, found around her throat, could have been the cause of death.

"Where the oxygen was cut off in some fashion, so it's something important that we look for and note because it may help us determining what we should be looking for as far as murder weapon or cause of death," Hurst said.

Prosecutors also showed evidence of tire tracks that were found around the back of the church and how the ground had been torn up, indicating that a car had gotten stuck.

The state allegedly linked that to earlier testimony about how mud was found on what is presumed to be the Inmans' white Ford Crown Victoria.

"It appeared to be mud potentially. It looked like hand marks, muddy hand marks around the rear exterior of the vehicle," Kollar said.

The younger Inman and his parents are being tried separately. His trial is the first of the three.

Father and son each are charged with two counts of aggravated murder, murder, tampering with evidence, kidnapping and abuse of a corpse. They have both pleaded not guilty. They both may face the death penalty, if convicted.

Sandra is charged with murder, kidnapping, tampering with evidence and gross abuse of a corpse. If convicted, she faces 15 years to life in prison.

Sandra's trial starts Monday, July 9. The elder Inman's trial begins Friday, Aug. 24.

Prosecutors said they plan to finish with witness testimony Friday in the younger Inman's case.

Detectives Take Stand In Case Of Logan Mother Found Dead In Septic Tank
Thursday June 7, 2012 12:25 PM
UPDATED: Thursday June 7, 2012 12:40 PM

There is a video on the above link that I could not get embedded.

LOGAN, Ohio - Investigators who took on the case of a mother found dead in a church septic tank last year took the stand on Thursday morning.

Investigators said that Summer Inman was abducted, strangled and dumped in an underground septic tank behind a church in nearby Athens County in March 2011, 10TV's Maureen Kocot reported.

Her estranged husband, William Inman II, and his parents have pleaded not guilty to murder.

Detectives testified that the lock handles on the car believed to be used as a getaway vehicle were removed from the back doors and the doors were disabled so they could not be opened from the inside, Kocot reported.

During a search inside the home where William Inman and his parents were staying, investigators said that they found a black hooded sweatshirt and a backpack with walkie-talkies and a flashlight with green laser sight.

"(The flashlight) has sharp edges on it like teeth and it's a last-ditch defensive weapon if necessary," Akron Police Detective Frank Harrah said.

William Inman II and his parents are being tried separately.

Ohio jury sees photos of body found in septic tank

Posted: Jun 08, 2012 4:40 AM CDT

LOGAN, Ohio (AP) - Jurors in a southeast Ohio murder trial have been shown photos of the body of a woman who was found strangled in a septic tank.

The Logan Daily News (http://bit.ly/NRt1H3 ) reports the images spurred gasps and then silence in the courtroom Thursday during testimony from an investigator who was at the property where 25-year-old Summer Inman was found last year.

Authorities say she was abducted in Logan, strangled and dumped in an underground septic tank behind a church in nearby Athens County. The investigator testified Inman's purse was still on her arm when her body was recovered.

Her estranged husband, 27-year-old William Inman II, is on trial in the killing. His parents also are charged and have trials scheduled later.

All three suspects have pleaded not guilty.

From what I remember, they hated her because they thought she was taking the children away from them with the divorce. Also, her ex was abusive and controlling and a "mama and daddy's boy". He had threatened to kill her if she ever left him.

Witness Testimony Continues in Inman Murder Trial
HOCKING COUNTY -- The Logan County Police Chief says William Inman II repeatedly asked about his wife's disappearance before being arrested for her murder.

During testimony in Inman's trial Wednesday, Chief Aaron Miller says the defendent made a series of phone calls to officers, requesting information about the status of the then-kidnapping case involving his wife, Summer.

William Inman II, along with his parents, were accused of murdering Summer Inman, 25, after the woman's body was found in an underground septic tank in Athens County.

Other witnesses described seeing a white Buick Crown Victoria at the scene of Summer Inman's abduction, as well as the site where her body was discovered. Police have linked that car to William Inman II and his parents.

The elder William Inman and his wife, Sandra, are also charged in Summer's murder. All three defendants are being tried separately.

Normal FBI Agent: Younger Inman Suggested Summer Faked Abduction

FBI Agent: Younger Inman Suggested Summer Faked Abduction

By: NBC4 | NBC4
Published: June 08, 2012
Updated: June 08, 2012 - 5:08 PM

LOGAN, Ohio --

FBI agents say the man charged in the slaying of his estranged wife told them he thought she was making up the kidnapping to get him into trouble.

The trial for 27-year-old William Inman Jr. continues Friday in Hocking County common pleas court in Logan, about 45 miles southeast of Columbus.

The younger Inman; his father, William A. Inman Sr.; and his mother, Sandra K. Inman, all are accused in connection with the March 2011 kidnapping and murder of 25-year-old Summer Inman.

Authorities have said Summer was abducted outside a Logan bank, forced into a car, strangled and dumped in an underground septic tank behind a church in nearby Athens County.

Hocking County Prosecutor Laina Fetherolf and her team called two FBI agents to testify about conversations they said they had with the younger Inman at his home in Akron.

One agent testified that the defendant said he thought Summer might have faked being kidnapped to get him in trouble.

The agents also claim he said he, his father and mother were broken down along the side of the road the entire night when Summer was kidnapped.

Agents also testified that a GPS device recovered from the Inman home allowed investigators to track the suspects' car. They claim the records showed that the car was in Logan the night Summer disappeared, and was not broken down.

The agents testified that the younger Inman said the unit was used to locate houses they were thinking of buying in the Cleveland area.

They testified that the GPS unit records coordinates, altitude, direction of travel, date, time, and speed.

"This system was going through Logan for quite some time until approximately 8 p.m.," said Michael Daugherty, a retired FBI agent.

Prosecutors asked if there was any indication that there was a technical problem with the vehicle, to which the agent testified no.

NBC4's Steve Wainfor reported that the prosecution completed its arguments Friday at about noon. The trial will resume Monday morning.

The younger Inman and his parents are being tried separately. His trial is the first of the three.

Father and son each are charged with two counts of aggravated murder, murder, tampering with evidence, kidnapping and abuse of a corpse. They have both pleaded not guilty. They both may face the death penalty, if convicted.

Sandra is charged with murder, kidnapping, tampering with evidence and gross abuse of a corpse. If convicted, she faces 15 years to life in prison.

Sandra's trial starts Monday, July 9. The elder Inman's trial begins Friday, Aug. 24.

Prosecution set to wrap up case in Inman trial

By Mary Beth Lane
The Columbus Dispatch Friday June 8, 2012 1:39

LOGAN, Ohio — The murder trial of William A. “Will” Inman II is expected to wrap up on Monday and go to the jury.

Hocking County Common Pleas Judge John T. Wallace told jurors today that he plans to sequester them during deliberations. He told them to bring a packed bag on Monday.

Prosecutors said they expect to rest their case on Monday. Defense attorneys will then present their case.

Testimony is done for today, the fifth day of the trial.

Inman, 27, faces the death penalty if convicted of aggravated murder in the abduction and strangulation of his estranged wife, 25-year-old Summer D. Inman, on March 22, 2011. His parents, William A. “Bill” Inman, 48, and Sandra K. Inman, 47, also are charged with the crime and are scheduled for trial.

Summer Inman died from ligature strangulation. A hard-plastic zip tie was cinched so tightly around her neck that it left a deep furrow that was visibly imprinted with the inside ridges of the zip tie, Dr. Bryan Casto, Montgomery County deputy coroner, told jurors this morning.

Jurors looked at photo close-ups while Casto testified. Inman inclined his head toward the overhead screen that displayed the photos, which also showed her wrists bound with three zip ties. Summer Inman’s father, Michael Cook, kept his eyes on the floor. He has said that he wants to remember only Summer’s smile.

Casto received the body of Summer Inman for autopsy after the mother of three was pulled from the underground septic tank of Faith Tabernacle Church near Nelsonville on March 29, 2011. Her mother-in-law divulged the location of her body to authorities.

Will Inman told authorities that he and his parents were in northeastern Ohio on March 22 2011. He even showed them his GPS unit, and said it showed the addresses of houses that he and his parents were looking at. They were considering buying houses to remodel, he told authorities.

The GPS unit that investigators took from the Akron home where the Inmans were staying, however, told a lot more than that. It told a different story than the one that Will Inman told of his whereabouts, jurors were told this morning.

Data downloaded from the GPS showed the unit traveled from northeastern Ohio to Logan and then Nelsonville on March 22, Michael Daugherty, an FBI special agent who analyzed the data, told jurors. He has since retired.

Jurors watched the overhead screen on which Daugherty placed a map that traced the route the GPS traveled. The unit traveled from the Mansfield area along I-71, and was in Logan around 5:43 p.m., and in front of a local Wal-Mart on Rt. 664 by about 8:06 p.m.

Prosecutors have said that Summer Inman was abducted around 11 p.m. on March 22 from outside the downtown Logan bank that she was cleaning after hours.

There was no GPS activity after 8:06 p.m. at Wal-Mart until the unit was turned again around 11:46 p.m. in Nelsonville, Daugherty testified as he continued showing the map.

The GPS trail then led to a car wash in Duncan Falls in Morgan County at about 1:30 a.m. on March 23, and then back up to northeastern Ohio later in the morning including stops at a car wash and an auto-parts business in the Cleveland area.

Prosecutors have said the Inmans cleaned the interior of the Ford Crown Victoria former police cruiser that they used to abduct Summer, and bought new tires for it, in an attempt to hide evidence.

FBI: Estranged Husband Of Woman Found In Septic Tank Gave False Alibi

Friday June 8, 2012 12:18 PM
UPDATED: Friday June 8, 2012 6:26 PM

LOGAN, Ohio - FBI agents took the stand on Friday about the alibi they said William Inman II gave regarding his whereabouts when his estranged wife was kidnapped.

According to agents, Inman told the FBI that he had been house hunting with his parents on March 22, 2011, the day that Inman disappeared.

Inman provided agents with a GPS to prove his story, but agents on Friday testified that the GPS ultimately revealed the location of the carwash where Inman and his parents were caught on camera scrubbing the car prosecutors said was used in connection with the slaying of Summer Inman, Inman's estranged wife, 10TV's Maureen Kocot reported.

An FBI agent, who 10TV News did not identify, testified that William Inman II said that it was possible that his estranged wife was faking her kidnapping.

"She could have made up the whole abduction story to frame him or get him in trouble," the agent said. "We pressed, 'You should take us to where your wife is,' and he said he needed his lawyer."

The prosecution rested its case on Friday, and the defense is expected to begin on Monday. It was unknown if William Inman II would take the stand in his own defense, Kocot reported.

William Inman II's father and mother will face trials this summer. William Inman has pleaded not guilty, and Sandra Inman has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.

Jury in Inman trial begins deliberations today

By Mary Beth Lane
The Columbus Dispatch Monday June 11, 2012 5:59 PM

LOGAN, Ohio — The jury in the William A. “Will” Inman II trial in Hocking County Common Pleas Court began deliberations this afternoon after hearing closing statements from the prosecution and defense.

Inman, 27, could face the death penalty if convicted of aggravated murder in the abduction and zip-tie strangulation of his estranged wife, Summer D. Inman, 25, on March 22, 2011. His father, William A. “Bill” Inman, 48, and his mother, Sandra K. Inman, 47, also are charged and are scheduled for trial.

The jurors began deliberations around 3:30 p.m., and broke at about 5:45 p.m. because they had not reached a verdict. Deliberations will resume at 8:30 a.m.

County Assistant Prosecutor William Archer told jurors that the prosecution had proved beyond a reasonable doubt that Will Inman was the principal offender or an accomplice who aided and abetted the aggravated murder of Summer. Either fits the legal definition of aggravated murder, Archer said.

“Whether William Inman II pulled that zip tie or aided or assisted in that act, either way, he is equally guilty,” Archer said.

State Assistant Public Defender Jerry McHenry, who represents Inman, told jurors that the state had not proved that his client strangled Summer Inman. It could have been his father, he suggested.

“Who did what? Who seems to be the leader of this trio?” McHenry said. “Dad seemed to be the boss dog at the carwash, seemed to be the leader.”

The senior Inman also seemed to dominate while his son was being interviewed on March 23 by FBI agents who were investigating Summer’s disappearance, yelling from another room to his son that he didn’t have to answer their questions, McHenry said.

The senior Inman also was the one who bought the white Ford Crown Victoria former police cruiser that prosecutors said was used to abduct Summer, McHenry said.

“Who pulled that zip tie? I don’t know.”

Archer and Paul Scarsella, a state assistant attorney general who is helping to prosecute the case, told jurors to use their common sense. “There was a plan,” Scarsella said. “This defendant has committed aggravated murder.”

Prosecutors said the Inmans tried to cover up the crime by taking the car used to abduct Summer to two carwashes to clean away evidence, and to a used-auto parts store to buy tires to change the car’s appearance.

Inman is charged with two counts of aggravated murder, and single counts of murder, kidnapping, tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse.

Summer Inman was abducted from outside a downtown Logan bank that she was cleaning after hours at about 11 p.m. on March 22, 2011. Her body, with a zip tie cinched tightly around her neck and her wrists bound with three zip ties, was recovered from the septic tank of Faith Tabernacle Church on March 29, 2011, after her mother-in-law divulged the location to authorities.

Will Inman did not take the stand during the trial, which began on June 4. Through last week, Scarsella, Archer and county Prosecutor Laina Fetherolf used eyewitness testimony, cellphone and GPS records, carwash surveillance tapes and other evidence to build their case.

The evidence appeared to contradict Inman’s alibi. He told authorities who were searching for his wife that he and his parents were not in Logan on March 22, 2011, but rather in northeastern Ohio.

Four people who were in downtown Logan late on the night of March 22 reported hearing and seeing a screaming woman being shocked by a stun gun by two men and forced into a white vehicle that resembled a police cruiser. A blond woman was behind the wheel.

Later, two motorists who drive past Faith Tabernacle Church saw a similar car parked there. They, too, thought it was a police cruiser.

Calls from Will Inman’s cellphone pinged off different cellphone towers, enabling investigators to trace the route. One of those calls, made at 8:50 p.m. on March 22, showed the phone was in Logan.

The time of the call matched testimony by Summer’s mother, Debbie Cook. Summer had moved back to her parents’ house with the couple’s three children in June 2010, after she left her marriage to Will. Will had visitation rights, and the couple customarily exchanged the children at the Logan Police Department.

In the 8:50 p.m. phone call, Will told Summer’s mother that he and his parents were stranded in the Cleveland area with car problems and he didn’t know if he would make it to Logan to pick up the children as planned on March 23, Cook testified.

This all was part of the alibi, prosecutors told jurors.

Will Inman’s GPS unit, which he showed FBI agents when they questioned him and his parents on March 23 while investigating Summer’s disappearance, divulged more data. It corroborated the cellphone records.

Downloaded data showed the GPS unit traveled from northeastern Ohio to Logan and then Nelsonville on March 22, jurors were told by the FBI special agent who analyzed the data.

The GPS trail then led to a carwash in Duncan Falls at about 1:30 a.m. on March 23, and then back up to northeastern Ohio later in the morning. Included on the trip were stops at a carwash in Seven Hills and an auto-parts business in the Cleveland area.

Prosecutors have said that the Inmans cleaned the car’s interior and bought different tires for it in attempts to hide evidence and change the appearance of the car.

Although the Inman family already owned four vehicles, the elder Inman bought the former police cruiser on March 18, 2011 because it was a car that no one who knew the Inmans would recognize, jurors were told.

The old police cruiser had no inside door handles in the back. There was no way to escape.

LOGAN, Ohio — The jury in the William A. “Will” Inman II trial in Hocking County Common Pleas Court began deliberations yesterday after hearing closing statements.

Inman, 27, could face the death penalty if convicted of aggravated murder in the abduction and zip-tie strangulation of his estranged wife, Summer D. Inman, 25, on March 22, 2011. His father, William A. “Bill” Inman, 48, and his mother, Sandra K. Inman, 47, also are charged and scheduled for trial.

The jurors deliberated for about two hours yesterday before being sequestered in an area motel for the night. They resume at 8:30 this morning.

County Assistant Prosecutor William Archer told jur-ors that prosecutors had proved beyond a reasonable doubt that Will Inman was the principal offender or an accomplice who assisted in the aggravated murder of Summer. Either fits the legal definition of aggravated murder, Archer said.

“Whether William Inman II pulled that zip tie or aided or assisted in that act, either way, he is equally guilty,” Archer said.

State Assistant Public Defender Jerry McHenry, who represents Will Inman, told jurors that the state had not proved his client strangled Summer. It could have been the elder Inman, “who seemed to be the boss dog ... seemed to be the leader,” of the Inman family, McHenry suggested.

“Who did what? Who seems to be the leader of this trio?” he said. “Who pulled that zip tie? I don’t know.”

Will Inman is charged with two counts of aggravated murder and single counts of murder, kidnapping, tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse.

Summer Inman was abducted outside a downtown Logan bank that she was cleaning at about 11 p.m. on March 22, 2011. Her body, with a zip tie cinched tightly around her neck and her wrists bound with three zip ties, was recovered from the septic tank of Faith Tabernacle Church on March 29, 2011, after her mother-in-law divulged the location to authorities.

Will Inman did not take the stand during the trial, which began on June 4. Prosecutors used witness testimony, cellphone and GPS records, car-wash surveillance tapes and other evidence to build their case.

The evidence appeared to contradict Will Inman’s alibi. He told authorities who were searching for his wife that he and his parents were not in Logan on March 22, 2011, but rather in northeastern Ohio.

Four people who were in downtown Logan on March 22 reported hearing and seeing a screaming woman being shocked by a stun gun by two men and forced into a white vehicle that resembled a police cruiser. A blond woman was behind the wheel.

Later, two motorists who drove past Faith Tabernacle Church saw a similar car parked there.

Calls from Will Inman’s cellphone pinged off different cellphone towers, enabling investigators to trace the route. One of those calls, made at 8:50 p.m. on March 22, showed the phone was in Logan.

The time matched testimony by Summer’s mother, Debbie Cook. She said she picked up the call to the house from Will. He said he and his parents were stranded in the Cleveland area with car problems and that he didn’t know whether he would make it to Logan to pick up the children as planned on March 23, Cook testified.

This was part of the alibi, prosecutors told jurors.

Will Inman’s GPS unit, which he showed FBI agents when they questioned him and his parents on March 23 about Summer’s disappearance, divulged data that aligned with cellphone records.

The data showed the GPS unit traveled from northeastern Ohio to Logan and then Nelsonville on March 22, jurors were told by the FBI special agent who analyzed the data.

The GPS trail led to a car wash in Morgan County at about 1:30 a.m. on March 23 and then back up to northeastern Ohio later in the morning. Included on the trip were stops at a car wash in Seven Hills and an auto-parts business in the Cleveland area.

Prosecutors have said the Inmans cleaned the car’s interior and put different tires on it while trying to hide evidence and change its appearance.

Although the Inmans owned four vehicles, the elder Inman bought the former police cruiser on March 18, 2011, because it was a car that no one who knew the family would recognize, jurors were told.

Jury Finds Inman Guilty Of Estranged Wife's Murder

LOGAN, Ohio --
A southeastern Ohio man has been found guilty of kidnapping and strangling his estranged wife Tuesday.

A jury returned a verdict of guilty on all counts for William Inman Jr. in Hocking County court Tuesday morning.

He was charged with two counts of aggravated murder, murder, tampering with evidence, kidnapping and abuse of a corpse, in connection with the March 2011 kidnapping and murder of 25-year-old Summer Inman.

The jury deliberated for less than two hours before returning with the verdict.

Inman could face the death penalty.

Some of Summer's friends and family said they were unsure of what to expect before the verdict was read.

"The defense said that a lot of it was circumstantial. I just thought that, how could there be a doubt that he was involved in Summer's death and responsible for it," said Jewel Cavinee, a friend of Summer's family.

"I really thought that it could go either way because you don't know what other people hear and you don't know if things that are obvious to you are not obvious to other people. So, I was really nervous," Drengler said.

Some community members said they feel the conviction is a step toward healing, especially for Summer's family.

"The verdict, I was relieved. I feel it's a piece of closure for Summer's family. They still have two trials to continue with, so hopefully those trials will have the same outcome as well," said Falisha Long, a Logan resident.

There were also mixed emotions about whether the younger Inman should be put to death.

"I have mixed feelings on that. I think the death penalty would be too easy for him. I would like to see him have a life term in prison with no parole and be in the general population myself," Long said.

"I think it's logical. I think it's useful. I used to think that it would be cold to say that, but when I think about, you know, do I want my tax dollars to go to keep him alive? For what purpose?" said Diana Drengler, Summer's aunt.

Mitigation, or the penalty phase of the trial, begins Thursday, when the defense will plead for the jury to save Inman's life.

The younger Inman's father, William A. Inman Sr.; and his mother, Sandra K. Inman, are also accused in her death.

During the younger Inman's trial, 191 pieces of evidence were presented, and 30 witnesses testified.

Authorities said Summer was abducted outside a Logan bank where she worked on March 22, 2011. They said she was forced into a car, strangled and dumped in an underground septic tank behind Faith Tabernacle church in nearby Athens County.

Her body was found on March 29, 2011. There was a zip tie around her neck and wrists, and her purse was still on her arm when her body was dumped, prosecutors said.

Witnesses said they heard screams and a Taser-like sound outside the bank on the night she was kidnapped.

Summer's mother also testified about her daughter's relationship with the younger Inman, saying she was scared of her estranged husband and that she had filed for divorce.

Eyewitnesses also described seeing what is presumed to be the Inmans' white Ford Crown Victoria outside the bank, and outside the church where Summer's body was found.

An FBI agent also testified that during conversations with authorities, the younger Inman said he thought Summer might have faked the kidnapping to get him in trouble.

The younger Inman and his parents are being tried separately. His trial is the first of the three.

The elder Inman is also charged with two counts of aggravated murder, murder, tampering with evidence, kidnapping and abuse of a corpse. He has pleaded not guilty and may face the death penalty if convicted.

Sandra is charged with murder, kidnapping, tampering with evidence and gross abuse of a corpse. If convicted, she faces 15 years to life in prison.

Sandra's trial starts Monday, July 9. The elder Inman's trial begins Friday, Aug. 24.

Inman gets life in prison

By Lori Kurtzman
The Columbus Dispatch Thursday June 14, 2012 9:13 PM

LOGAN, Ohio — Will Inman is just a boy in a man’s body, a 27-year-old who never had to fight his own battles, his attorney said today.

So when his wife left him and took their three children, he did what he always did: He let Mom and Dad take care of it.

Assistant public defender Herman Carson hoped that painting the picture of Inman as a developmentally stunted and spoiled child — the only one born to Sandra and William Inman — would save the convicted murderer’s life.

It worked.

A Hocking County jury spared Inman the death penalty today, instead recommending that he be sentenced to life without parole for his role in the March 22, 2011, murder of his estranged wife.

Minutes later, Common Pleas Judge John T. Wallace did just that, tacking on an extra 13 years for counts of kidnapping, tampering with evidence and gross abuse of a corpse.

The rest of the article at the link above. I read a couple of reviews. Pretty interesting comments.

LOGAN, Ohio --
A juror in the trial of William Inman Jr. says there was one piece of evidence that convinced them of his guilt.

The jury found Inman guilty in connection with the March 2011 kidnapping and murder of his estranged wife, Summer Inman.

He was charged with two counts of aggravated murder, murder, tampering with evidence, kidnapping and abuse of a corpse. He was sentenced Thursday to life in prison without parole.

Juror Jesse Harmon told NBC4 he wanted to do his duty and took the job of serving on the Inman jury very seriously.

"I thought that was probably the saddest thing in the world. You come from a small place like Logan, you don't expect something like that to happen," Harmon said.

Harmon said that when he was selected, he had to push aside his emotions.

He said he thought the state had good evidence -- 191 pieces of it -- but that there was one thing that proved to him that the younger Inman was guilty.

"If it wasn't for the GPS, we probably wouldn't have found him guilty at all. The GPS proved that he was in Logan when he said he wasn't. He lied to police about it. The interesting thing is the GPS was the one thing he physically gave to the detective," Harmon said.

The juror said he was surprised that they reached a guilty verdict so quickly, but he revealed that the jury had decided guilty on all the lesser counts on the first night of deliberations.

They only had the charges of murder and aggravated murder to decide on Tuesday morning.

When it came to sentencing, Harmon said that some jurors felt the death penalty was not right, which caused a deadlock.

"What did you think about the sentencing? Do you think it's fair?" NBC4 asked Harmon.

"Yes I think … it is. I think we made the right decision for the circumstances," Harmon said.

He added that he will never forget the autopsy photos of Summer's body bound with zip ties in an underground septic tank.

There was a zip tie around her neck and wrists when she was found.

"It was horrid and I don't think anyone should ever see pictures like that again," he said. "It's going to stay with me the rest of my life."

Authorities said Summer was abducted and forced into a car outside a Logan bank where she worked on March 22, 2011. She was strangled and dumped in the septic tank behind Faith Tabernacle Church in Athens County where her body was found on March 29, 2011.

The younger Inman's father, William A. Inman Sr.; and his mother, Sandra K. Inman, are also accused in her death.

The younger Inman and his parents are being tried separately. His trial is the first of the three.

The elder Inman is also charged with two counts of aggravated murder, murder, tampering with evidence, kidnapping and abuse of a corpse. He has pleaded not guilty and may face the death penalty if convicted.

Sandra is charged with murder, kidnapping, tampering with evidence and gross abuse of a corpse. If convicted, she faces 15 years to life in prison.

Sandra's trial starts Monday, July 9. The elder Inman's trial begins Friday, Aug. 24.

Normal Sandra Inman Could Take Plea Deal In Connection With Daughter-In-Law’s Slaying

Post by Wrapitup on Mon Jun 18, 2012 11:56 pm

Monday June 18, 2012 8:36 PM
UPDATED: Monday June 18, 2012 8:39 PM

LOGAN, Ohio - Talks were under way on Monday for a potential plea deal for a woman accused in connection with her daughter-in-law’s slaying.

Sandra Inman, who pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, was in court on Monday after being found competent to stand trial for the kidnapping and strangulation of Summer Inman in March 2011.

Inman told the judge on Monday that she had been meeting regularly with her attorney, 10TV’s Maureen Kocot reported.

Prosecutors said that it was possible the two sides could reach a plea deal, but any deal would have to be agreed upon by Summer Inman’s family, Kocot reported.

Sandra Inman’s son, William Inman II, was convicted of aggravated murder and sentenced to life in prison with no chance for parole.

Inman’s husband, William Inman, is set to stand trial later this summer.

Younger Inman Seeks New Trial In Septic Tank Body Case

By: Associated Press | NBC4
Published: June 27, 2012

LOGAN, Ohio --
A man convicted of killing his estranged wife, who was found strangled in a septic tank, is seeking a new trial in southeast Ohio.

William Inman II was sentenced to life in prison without parole this month after a Hocking County jury in Logan found him guilty of aggravated murder and other charges in the slaying of his 25-year-old wife, Summer.

Authorities said she was abducted in March 2011, then strangled with a zip tie and dumped in an underground septic tank in nearby Athens County.

A motion filed Monday alleges prosecutors didn't disclose information about a witness' prior felony conviction, which could have cast doubt on the reliability of the witness.

The county prosecutor wasn't available to comment Wednesday.

Inman's parents also are charged in the case.

Normal Sandra Inman Pleads Guilty, Apologizes To Summer's Parents

Post by Wrapitup on Thu Jun 28, 2012 8:27 pm

Published: June 28, 2012

LOGAN, Ohio --
A woman accused in the kidnapping and death of her daughter-in-law has pleaded guilty to all charges.

Sandra K. Inman, 46, is accused in connection with the March 2011 kidnapping and murder of 25-year-old Summer Inman.

Sandra pleaded guilty Thursday to murder, kidnapping, tampering with evidence, and gross abuse of a corpse.

Judge John Wallace sentenced her to 15 years to life in prison.

Sandra cried during the plea, and addressed Summer's parents during the hearing.

"I love Summer and I want you to know how sorry I am," she said. "I am so, so sorry. I do love Summer and I have always loved Summer. And my poor parents -- they are missing me so much. This was never supposed to happen. Ever. Ever."

Authorities said Summer was abducted and forced into a car outside a Logan bank where she worked on March 22, 2011. She was strangled and dumped in the septic tank behind Faith Tabernacle Church in Athens County where her body was found on March 29, 2011.

Summer's estranged husband, William A. Inman Jr., was found guilty earlier this month of two counts of aggravated murder, murder, tampering with evidence, kidnapping and abuse of a corpse. He was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Defense attorney Kristen Burkett said that Sandra felt that Summer's children were in danger and that they were trying to make Summer understand – but that's when things went horribly wrong.

Summer's father-in-law, William A. Inman Sr., is charged with two counts of aggravated murder, murder, tampering with evidence, kidnapping and abuse of a corpse.

Before sentencing, Prosecutor Laina Fetherolf read a statement from Summer's parents about the questions that Summer's children have about their mother.

"He asked, 'How did mommy die? Was she shot? Was she cut? Where was she when she died?' What terrible things for a sweet little boy to have to think about. Think about how sad the possible answers are," Fetherolf read.


The elder Inman will go to trial on August 27.

Judge hears request from Summer Inman’s husband for new trial
Tuesday July 10, 2012 11:19 PM

A judge is considering a new trial for a man convicted of killing his estranged wife, who was found strangled in a southeastern Ohio septic tank last year.

Hocking County Judge John Wallace heard arguments on Monday in the case of William Inman II. He was convicted last month of aggravated murder and other charges in 25-year-old Summer Inman’s death.

His attorneys had filed a motion claiming a witness’ criminal background was not disclosed before he testified against their client. They say the new information tarnishes the credibility of the witness.

County Prosecutor Laina Fetherolf declined to comment today.

Inman’s mother pleaded guilty last month to murder and other charges. Sandra Inman was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison.

Sandra Inman’s husband also is charged in the case.
