Dad indicted of murder of wife; couple in "contentious" child custody fight (Columbus, Ohio)

Once again, we see that daddies like WILLIAM "WILL" INMAN aren't interested in "sharing" child custody. They're interested in terrorizing the mother of their children because she dared to leave them. And the same fathers are more than happy to act out violently--whether they win or lose. 'Cause it's all about total power, control and entitlement, don't you know. Never mind that the three children are now without a mother for the rest of their lives. So much for "sharing."

The father-in-law and estranged husband of Summer Inman, the mother of three who was abducted, strangled and then left in a septic tank, have each been indicted on aggravated murder charges. Each could face the death penalty if convicted.

The case was indicted with capital specifications, Hocking County Prosecutor Laina Fetherolf said today in a news release.

A grand jury on Friday issued indictments against William A. "Bill" Inman, 47, and William A. "Will" Inman II, 26. Each is charged with two counts of aggravated murder and single counts of murder, kidnapping, tampering with evidence and gross abuse of a corpse.

The younger Inman pleaded not guilty today to those; he was in court on a kidnapping charge for which he was indicted earlier. Common Pleas Judge Thomas Gerken continued the $1 million bond on which he is being held.

The elder Inman is expected to be arraigned tomorrow morning before Gerken on the additional charges at a previously scheduled hearing on a kidnapping charge, Fetherolf said.

The Inman men, and Sandra K. "Sandy" Inman, 46, are being held in lieu of $1 million bond at the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail. They were indicted in March on kidnapping and abduction charges.

Mrs. Inman is the wife of Bill Inman and the mother of Will Inman.

Further charges against Mrs. Inman were not presented to the grand jury, Fetherolf said. She has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to kidnapping and abduction charges, and her attorney has filed a motion claiming that she is incompetent to stand trial, Fetherolf said.

Summer and Will Inman were going through a contentious divorce and child-custody fight.

The 25-year-old 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.
