A convicted murderer is headed to death row. David Hosier was convicted last month of murdering Angela Gilpin in 2009. Judge Patricia Joyce delivered the sentence Tuesday.
Hosier is said to have killed Rodney Gilpin and his wife Angela. Investigators said Angela and Hosier had a romantic relationship while she was separated from her husband, but the Gilpins were trying to reconcile.
The couple were shot several times in Angela Gilpin’s apartment in Jefferson City, which is just a block from Hosier’s home.
A jury took barely more than an hour to convict Hosier in his original trial for the murder of Angela. They took less than three hours to make the decision to recommend the death penalty the next day.
Hosier has not yet been to trial for the shooting death of Angela’s husband, Rodney.
