Hans Leitner (Leutner), a Hutterite martyr, was captured with Klaus Felbinger on 2 April 1560, at Neumarkt, Lower Bavaria, Germany, and imprisoned at Landshut, where they were repeatedly cross-examined and terribly tortured. When all these attempts to convert them proved futile, they were beheaded on 19 July 1560.
