INDIANAPOLIS — An Indianapolis man has been sentenced to 53 years in prison for the fatal shooting of a 1-year-old girl and the wounding of her 19-year-old aunt.
Twenty-eight-year-old Darrin Banks learned his punishment Wednesday after being convicted of murder and battery by means of a deadly weapon.
Banks and 30-year-old Brian Palmer were charged with murder in the March 29, 2018, shooting that killed Malaysia Robson and wounded her aunt.
Authorities allege in court documents that the men fired about 20 shots from a vehicle at a house when the victims and 10 other people were inside. Police say the shooting followed a dispute that started on social media.
Palmer faces a jury trial in November.
