Update 10:55 a.m. Jurors in a trial over a Southeast Ohio woman found murdered in a septic tank have reached a verdict.

After less than 24 hours of deliberation, Hocking County jurors found William Inman II guilty all counts, including two counts of aggravated murder. According to media reports, both counts carry death penalty specifications.
 
Inman had pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder, as well as kidnapping, murder, tampering with evidence, and abuse of a corpse in the slaying of his 25-year-old estranged wife, Summer.
 
Authorities say she was abducted, strangled with a zip tie and dumped in an underground septic tank behind an Athens County church last year.
 
Inman's parents also have pleaded not guilty to charges in the case. They will be tried later.

 

Jurors are scheduled to resume deliberations Tuesday morning in a trial over the murder of a southeast Ohio woman found in a septic tank.

Jurors in Hocking County Court in Logan will begin a second day of deliberations in the trial of William Inman II. He has pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder and other charges in the slaying of his 25-year-old estranged wife, Summer Inman.
 
Court officials say the jurors, who were sequestered for the night at a hotel, deliberated for about two hours Monday afternoon without reaching a verdict.
 
Authorities say Summer Inman was abducted, strangled and dumped in an underground septic tank behind an Athens County church last year.
 
Inman's parents also have pleaded not guilty to charges in the case. They will be tried later.
