Jury chosen in Hocking County case over septic tank slaying

CHILLICOTHE, Ohio - A jury has been chosen in the trial of a southeast Ohio man charged with aggravated murder in the death of his daughter-in-law who was strangled with a zip tie and dumped in a septic tank.

A court official said the jury selected Friday will hear opening statements Monday in 48-year-old William Inman's trial. The trial was moved to Chillicothe after attempts to seat a jury in Hocking County were unsuccessful. Inman could face the death penalty if convicted.

Inman's wife and son have been convicted in the March 2011 slaying of Summer Inman of Logan, about 45 miles southeast of Columbus.

Authorities allege 25-year-old Summer Inman was killed because she had filed for divorce and was seeking custody of the three children she had with William Inman II.
