Posted by Warren Krech on January 4, 2013

A man accused of killing a Jefferson City couple in 2009 will go on trial this month.

The AP reports 57-year-old David Hosier’s trial for first-degree murder and other charges will start on the 14th. Hosier is charged in the deaths of 61-year-old Rodney Gilpin and his wife, 45-year-old Angela Gilpin. They died in September 2009 after being shot several times in Angela Gilpin’s Jefferson City apartment, a block from Hosier’s home.

Investigators say Angela Gilpin had a romantic relationship with Hosier while separated from her husband, but the Gilpins were trying to reconcile. Angela Gilpin had sought an order of protection against Hosier.
