Closing arguments are expected Monday morning in the trial of a Southeast Ohio man accused of strangling his daughter-in-law with a zip tie and dumping her body in a septic tank.

The prosecution and defense in the capital murder case of Willian Inman rested its case in Ross County Common Pleas Court Thursday afternoon.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that the Montgomery County Deputy Coroner testified Thursday about the autopsy he performed on Inman's daughter-in-law, 25-year-old Summer Inman, whose strangled body was found stuffed in an underground septic tank.

He was the last prosecution witness scheduled to testify.

On Thursday morning, jurors listened to FBI agents testify about interviewing the Inmans at their Akron house when Summer Inman was still missing.

Jurors also heard testimony from a forensic scientist with the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation.

Sandra Inman and William Inman II were convicted in Summer Inman's death.

Authorities say Summer Inman was killed because she had filed for divorce and was seeking custody of the three children she had with William Inman II.

Inman could receive the death penalty if he is convicted.
