Judge denies Inman's request for new trial

Jul 12, 2012

A Hocking County judge has denied a motion seeking a new trial for a man convicted of killing his estranged wife last year. William Inman II was convicted last month and sentenced to life in prison in the death of 25-year-old Summer Inman. The judge rejected defense claims that a witness'
criminal background was not disclosed before he testified at trial. The judge says there is no indication the verdict would have been different if jurors had disregarded the testimony.
