Closing arguments are scheduled for Monday in the Ohio trial of a man charged with aggravated murder and other crimes in the slaying of his daughter-in-law, who was strangled with a zip tie and dumped in a septic tank.
The prosecution and defense spent last week presenting their arguments to the jury in the trial of William Inman, 48.
The prosecutor said Inman ruled the family and wanted to help his son, who was in a child custody dispute with the woman.
Inman's attorney said the son killed Summer Inman, 25. The defense said the elder Inman and his wife helped kidnap their daughter-in-law in Logan to talk about concerns over their grandchildren and then tried to cover up their son's crime.
Inman's son and wife were convicted in the murder.
