LOGAN, Ohio -- Jurors in a southeast Ohio murder trial have been shown photos of the body of a woman who was found strangled in a septic tank. 

The Logan Daily News reports the images spurred gasps and then silence in the courtroom Thursday during testimony from an investigator who was at the property where 25-year-old Summer Inman was found last year.

Authorities say she was abducted in Logan, strangled and dumped in an underground septic tank behind a church in nearby Athens County.

The investigator testified Inman's purse was still on her arm when her body was recovered.

Her estranged husband, 27-year-old William Inman II, is on trial in the killing. His parents also are charged and have trials scheduled later.

All three suspects have pleaded not guilty.
