Authorities say the vehicle believed to be used in an Ohio woman's abduction was an old police cruiser with no door handles in the back seat.

The details came Thursday during testimony in the southeast Ohio trial of a man accused of killing his estranged wife.

Twenty-seven-year-old William Inman II and his parents have pleaded not guilty in the death of 25-year-old Summer Inman.

Authorities say she was abducted, strangled and dumped in an underground septic tank behind a church in nearby Athens County.

Inman and his parents are being tried separately, with Inman's trial the first of the three.

Police detectives told jurors that the car was taken as evidence from the Akron house where Inman was staying with his parents last year.
