LOGAN, Ohio (AP) — A jury has convicted a man of aggravated murder and other charges in the death of his estranged wife, who was found strangled in a septic tank in southeast Ohio last year.

Hocking County jurors in Logan deliberated for about four hours before returning a verdict Tuesday in the trial of 27-year-old William Inman II. He could face the death penalty when he's sentenced.

His parents also are charged. They are being tried separately in the slaying of his 25-year-old wife, Summer.

Authorities say she was abducted in Logan, strangled with a zip tie and dumped in an underground septic tank behind a church in March of last year.

Inman's parents have pleaded not guilty. They'll be tried later this year.
