A mistrial was declared on Wednesday for the man accused of killing his daughter-in-law.
According to the Hocking County Prosecutor’s Office, the mistrial was declared because a jury could not be seated in the case against William Inman Sr.
Both sides in the case have until next Friday to submit their thoughts about where they could move the trial, according to prosecutor Laina Fetherolf.
Inman is accused of being the mastermind in the death of Summer Inman in March 2011. Her body was found in an Athens County septic tank.
William Inman’s son, William Inman Jr., and wife, Sandra Inman, also were accused in Summer Inman’s death.
William Inman II was sentenced to life in prison earlier this summer, and Inman’s wife, Sandra Inman, took a plea deal and will spend 15 years to life in prison.
