The father-in-law and estranged husband of Summer Inman, the mother of three who was abducted and found bound and strangled in a septic tank, have each been indicted on aggravated murder charges.
William A. "Bill" Inman, 47, and William A. "Will" Inman, 26, are each charged with two counts of aggravated murder, and single counts of murder, kidnapping, tampering with evidence and gross abuse of a corpse.
The charges are listed online at the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail website. They are being held there in lieu of $1 million bond.
They, and Sandra K. "Sandy" Inman, 46, who also is being held at the jail on the same bond, were indicted previously on kidnapping and abduction charges.
Hocking County Prosecutor Laina Fetherolf said this morning that she could not confirm the indictments. She said it was "more than likely" that the Inmans had been served with the charges at the jail and that is why they appeared in the jail's online records.
Summer and Will Inman were going through a contentious divorce and child-custody fight.
She was abducted from downtown Logan March 22. Her bound, strangled body was found in a church septic tank near Nelsonville March 29 after Sandy Inman made an unspecified deal with prosecutors and told authorities where the body could be found.
