A man convicted of killing his estranged wife, who was found strangled in a septic tank, is seeking a new trial in southeast Ohio.

William Inman II was sentenced to life in prison without parole this month after a Hocking County jury in Logan found him guilty of aggravated murder and other charges in the slaying of his 25-year-old wife, Summer.
 
Authorities said she was abducted in March 2011, then strangled with a zip tie and dumped in an underground septic tank in nearby Athens County.
 
A motion filed Monday alleges prosecutors didn't disclose information about a witness' prior felony conviction, which could have cast doubt on the reliability of the witness.
 
The county prosecutor wasn't available to comment Wednesday.
 
Inman's parents also are charged in the case.
