Mother-In-Law Pleads Guilty In Septic Tank Murder

A mother-in-law of a southeast Ohio woman found strangled in a septic tank has pleaded guilty to all charges related to her daughter-in-law's death. A Hocking County prosecutor says attorneys reached a plea deal with Sandra Inman, who had pointed authorities to her daughter-in-law's body. The 47-year-old Inman pleaded guilty Thursday to charges of murder, kidnapping, tampering with evidence and gross abuse of a corpse. She was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison.
