State top court will not review case

MUNCIE — The Indiana Supreme Court has ruled it will not review the murder conviction of a former prison guard serving a 64-year prison sentence in his estranged wife’s slaying.

The state highest court in a unanimous decision it would not “accept transfer” of the case of Benjamin Hankins.

The Indiana Court of Appeals in April rejected Hankins’ contention that the jurors who convicted him in April 2012 should not have heard testimony from a social worker who recounted remarks made by his 4-year-old daughter. The youngest of the couple’s three children was waiting outside when her father shot her mother, 32-year-old Lisa “Nettie” Hankins, who was seeking a divorce.
