The quality of police training academies in Ohio and the need for stronger statewide training standards are among the issues an attorney general’s committee is considering as it explores possible changes to the way Ohio trains police officers.
Jury Recommends Life In Prison For Hocking County Killer
An attorney for a man convicted in the slaying of his estranged wife and the discovery of her body in a southeast Ohio septic tank says it’s obvious the jury paid close attention to the evidence and what the law is in recommending a life sentence.
Attorney Herman Carson says the jurors took their obligation seriously and came to an appropriate conclusion.
The Hocking County jury on Thursday recommended a life sentence with no chance of parole for 27-year-old William Inman II, who had faced the possibility of a death sentence. Inman was convicted of killing 25-year-old Summer Inman.
Authorities say she was abducted in Logan on March 22, 2011, and was strangled with a zip tie and dumped in an underground septic tank behind a church in nearby Athens County.
