An Ohio woman was laid to rest Monday almost a week after she was found in a church's septic system with a zip tie pulled tightly around her neck. Her estranged husband and his parents have been charged with kidnapping.
Summer Inman, 25, and her husband were in the middle of a divorce and custody dispute, police said. The woman's parents have been awarded temporary custody of the children, who are ages 5, 3 and 1.
The children attended her funeral along with the grandparents, Michael and Debra Cook, at First Church Praise and Worship Center in Logan, about 45 miles southeast of Columbus.
Summer Inman was abducted March 22 outside a bank where she worked as a cleaner. Witnesses told police that they saw two men in dark clothing force her into a white car outside the bank, and that a blonde woman was driving it.
Her body was found a week later in a septic tank behind the Faith Tabernacle Church in Athens County, about 10 miles from the Logan bank in southern Ohio. A coroner's preliminary ruling attributed her death to strangulation.
William Inman II, 26; Sandra Inman, 46; and William Inman, 47, all of Akron, pleaded not guilty Wednesday to one count of kidnapping and one count of abduction.
Sandra Inman provided information that led authorities to the church, police said. The three apparently were former members of the church.
They were seen on a car wash surveillance video appearing to vacuum and make alterations to a white Crown Victoria, police said. They were being held on $1 million bond.
Any additional charges against the three would have to go before a grand jury, and the next grand jury meets April 22, Hocking County Prosecutor Laina Fetherolf said Monday.
