It’s either life without parole or a date with the executioner. David Hosier of Jefferson City was convicted this week in the death of his former girlfriend Angela Gilpin. He’s also accused of gunning down her husband Rodney Gilpin in the 2009 attack.
Jurors Thursday heard from the victims sons, Hosier’s ex-wife and mother and others testifying in his sentencing hearing. Testimony also revolved around previous violent assaults involving Hosier and a stay in a mental facility. Hosier is accused of using a machine gun to kill the couple outside a West Main apartment.
