William Inman

William Inman found guilty of killing his daughter-in-law

A Ross County jury found the third person charged with killing Logan resident Summer Cook Inman guilty Monday.

William “Bill” Inman, 48, was found guilty of two counts of aggravated murder, one count of murder, kidnapping, tampering with evidence and gross abuse of a corpse.  

Bill Inman; his son, William “Will” Inman, 28; and his wife, Sandra Inman, 48, were found guilty of kidnapping Will’s estranged wife, Summer, in Logan March 22, 2011.

They then choked her to death with a zip-tie and hid her body in a septic tank behind the Faith Tabernacle Church in Nelsonville.

Ohio Assistant Attorney General Paul Scarsella said during his closing argument that Will Inman and Summer were going through a “contentious divorce, all centered around the custody” of the couple’s three children.

Bill Inman could be given the death penalty.

The trial was moved to Ross County after Hocking County Court of Common Pleas Judge John Wallace granted Bill Inman’s motion for a change in venue.

Will Inman was found guilty by a jury in Hocking County June 12 and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Sandra Inman pleaded guilty June 29 and was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison.
