The murder trial of a man charged in the slaying of his daughter-in-law – found strangled in a septic tank – has been moved to another southern Ohio county.

Hocking County Common Pleas Judge John Wallace said Tuesday that William Inman Sr.’s trial will be held in Chillicothe in Ross County. Wallace earlier granted the change-of-venue motion by Inman’s attorneys. Wallace said too many prospective jurors knew the facts of the case and had decided the question of Inman’s guilt.

The 48-year-old Inman is charged with aggravated murder and other crimes in the March 2011 slaying of 25-year-old Summer Inman. He faces a possible death penalty if convicted.

Inman’s wife and son were convicted earlier this year in the slaying.
