Execution Of Inman Still Possible

Aug 23, 2012

A Hocking County judge today denied a request by the man charged with strangling his daughter-in-law and leaving her body in a septic tank to remove the death penalty as a possible punishment if he is convicted.

Attorneys for William Inman told the judge on Wednesday a plea deal with Inman's wife prevents the state from pursuing the death penalty. The suspect is charged in the March 2011 murder of 25-year-old Summer Inman.  His wife and son already have been convicted.
