LOGAN, Ohio (AP) - A judge has ruled that the mother-in-law of a southeast Ohio woman found strangled in a septic tank was sane at the time of the alleged crime.
Sandra Inman has been charged with murder, kidnapping, tampering with evidence and gross abuse of a corpse.
Inman had earlier pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to kidnapping 25-year-old Summer Inman in Logan in March 2011. Summer Inman's estranged husband and father-in-law have pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and kidnapping.
The Logan Daily News reports a Hocking County Common Pleas Court judge also ruled Thursday that a jury trial should be set.
The Hocking County Common Pleas Court has previously declared Sandra Inman competent to stand trial.
