James Santelli was staying at a motel owned by Abu Rahmatullah for several months as he worked at a nearby construction project. Joseph Pryor had been previously employed at the motel as a general maintenance man. There was no criminal background check done on Pryor. Pryor had a prior conviction and was wanted at the time he was hired for probation violations. When he left his job at the motel, Pryor kept his master keycard. Pryor used the keycard to enter Santelli’s room and later confessed to robbing and killing him, with a resulting sentence of 85 years. Mr. Santelli’s widow brought suit against Rahmatullah for his negligence in hiring Pryor. Can Rahmatullah be held liable for Mr. Santelli’s death? [Santelli v. Rahmatullah, [966 N.E.2d 661 (Ind. App.)]
