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.
