Woman told cops septic tank death accidental

LOGAN, Ohio — A southeast Ohio woman told authorities in a taped confession that her son accidentally strangled his estranged wife with a plastic zip tie before his parents helped him dump the body in a church septic tank two years ago.

Sandra Inman, 47, is serving prison time for her involvement in the death of 25-year-old Summer Inman. She told investigators in 2011 that she wanted to see her grandchildren more so she came up with the idea of forcing her daughter-in-law into the car in Logan so they could discuss the issue, according to a transcript of the interview unsealed Thursday.
